Description:This is a fuse that folks have failed to appreciate or note in the reference books. It is a late war adaptation for the case shot and instead of a tube stuck in the base hole, this one had a white metal collar sleeve that channeled the flame to the powder cavity in the shell base. I have not cleaned this one at all but the dirt will come off nicely if desired.
