Item: Confederate time fuze adaptor.
Construction: Cast copper.
Approximate size: Diameter: 1.25 inches. Length: 1.48 inches.
Condition: Excellent, excavated, uncleaned. The adaptor still has the residual soil remaining and a portion of the paper time fuze is still visible in the fuze hole. The threads appear to be in good condition. It has a very pleasing woodsy green patina with no cracks, breaks, or repairs.
Recovered: Fort Brady area, VA. It was here that the Union Army engineers constructed a fortification overlooking the James River in late 1864 which prevented movement of Confederate gunboats.
Comments: This adaptor was acquired direct from the digger who recovered it decades ago. They were used in spherical artillery projectiles and, if you like that fresh out of the ground appearance, then this one is for you. The two spanner holes, visible on the top of the adaptor and to either side of the center hole, accommodated a wrench used to screw it into the shell. Once the adaptor was in place, a paper time fuze, was inserted into the center hole. This Confederate time fuze adaptor will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War artillery or general relic collection.
