Description:This is the last of the double "R" stamped fuses I have. I recently got it from Pete George.

The "R" is believed to be for "reloaded." After a cruise, the paper time fuses in these were replaced lest the moisture of sea faring had gotten to them. So this one would've been reloaded twice before it was tossed aside.

The threads are perfect and the insert screws in and out easily.
