Description:Nice white metal Parrott time fuse adapter with the "W" stamped on the head. These tapered adapters were used in the earlier shells that had the shelf in the fuse hole for the 2pc percussion fuse slider. It is believed the "W" on the head was for the "West Point" foundry where these were manufactured at Parrott's Cold Spring, NY facility.

I saw a mold for these in the basement of the Atlanta History Museum. I also went to the park of the Parrott factory in Cold Spring, and it is a very interesting walk in the 21 acre preserve.
