Type I Hotchkiss White-Metal Paper Time Fuze Adaptor For Case-Shot

This is a type I Hotchkiss white-metal paper time fuze adaptor which was only manufactured early in the war. According to Charles H. Jones' author of "Artillery Fuses of the Civil War", exclusively used in case-shot projectiles and were later replaced by brass adaptors with screwdriver slots. This example is in good condition and has its two spanner wrench holes visible on its top. These holes were for the spanner wrench to install the fuze plug. Its head measures approximately 1.05 inches in diameter, its length is approximately 2.48 inches and the body is approximately .64 inches in diameter. This artillery relic has no repairs and will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War artillery or general relic collection. $225.00 Questions?
