Click on an image to enlarge

This is a nice piece for the price! It is an original excavated Civil War Schenkl patent percussion style cannon shell fuse. This is just the top 1-1/4th inches with the bottom section blown off. This is the style that is illustrated on page 99 of the fuse book by Chuck Jones. They are made of brass. Around the head of the fuse it has the traces of the J.P. Schenkl patent markings that include the October 16th 1861 patent date. One thing that is neat about this one is that it has had a center cap added to the fuse. It unscrews to reveal the cavity and show how the inner workings of the fuse are designed. This is a nice piece that any collector would appreciate.
