Relic shows are cancelling left and right, and one show promoter told me he didn't think there'd be any shows until next year. If that's the case, we'll sorely miss seeing our friends. Who knows what will happen, but we're still here operating in this new, online-only world. Getting things to where we can photograph and ship them is a little more challenging than usual, but fortunately some good people keep asking us to buy and sell their accumulations so we're plugging away! Please be patient and stay safe.

We continue to experience intermittent delivery of order emails, so it's wise to email us directly at and to be sure your order gets through. Thank you for your patience while we try to address this.

Book: Jones page 81

Description:This is a short lived improvement over the original, unreliable style of Parrott percussion fuses. The taper was made to fit through the hole in the "shelf" cast in shells originally for the striker of the early style Parrott percussion fuses. Before long, the shells with this shelf were replaced with ones that took the more common straight-sided Parrott percussion fuse shown on Jones, page 84.

As a result, these are uncommon.
