U00486 - Unlisted Confederate time fuse adapter for case shot shells

Item Number: U00486

Item Title: Unlisted Confederate time fuse adapter for case shot shells

Price: $85

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS

Type: CS time fuse adapter for case shot

Shell Type: Rifled CS case shot shell

Thread Diameter: ~1in

Thread Count: 12tpi

Book: Not listed

Location Recovered: CS retreat route on way to Appomattox

Description:These did not make the fuse book for some reason, probably because they are much scarcer than the regular CS time fuse adapters. This is the long pattern adapter for use in rifled shells, but it has a small base hole. The small hole was to limit the relatively small bursting charge in case shot shells' force from venting through the fuse as it would have done if these had the normal adapters with the bigger bottom hole.

The digger brought this to me at the recent Richmond Show. His name is available to the buyer.
