Description:A type of the Bormann fuse you don't see too often with the double wrench slot. In this type the powder path is hidden in the center which divides to square wrench holes used to screw the fuse in and out. The face of the fuse is pretty good for a dug fuse with the numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4 being very readable. The fuse is punched at the longest burn time of 5.25 seconds. The only real blemish on the face of the fuse is that the lip is broken off around the right 1/3 but whatever broke it didn't damage the timing marks. The back is equally nice retaining the horse shoe and tin patch. The patch clearly shows the 4 holes punched in it. The threads are very nice as well.
