Parrott "Short" Time Fuse Adaptor

This excavated Parrott "short" time fuse adaptor is in very good condition. This fine artillery relic was acquired direct from the digger who recovered it from New Kent County, VA. If you like that fresh out of the ground appearance, then this is for you, as it has had little or no cleaning. There still remains the fine soil of New Kent lodged in the paper time fuse hole. This adaptor is made out of zinc with twelve threads per inch. The two spanner holes visible on the top of the adaptor were used to screw it into the Parrott shell. A paper time fuse, of varying burn times, would then be inserted into the larger center hole. This adaptor measures approximately 1.13 inches in diameter and 1.62 inches in length. It has no cracks, breaks, or repairs and will be an excellent addition to any Civil War artillery or general relic collection.
