Description:Confederate artillerists were desperate for percussion fuses but they were always in short supply. This type is styled on the US "West Point" style 2pc fuse in the James shells, but the flat base gives it away as CS. These were very reliable and this one definitely worked!

These are usually found in the deep South or Western theater, but this one made it to late war Virginia.
