Description:As the war progressed and effort was made to distinguish the fuse hole sizes for case shot vs. common Hotchkiss shells. The case shot required a special fuse adapter and artillerists were putting the wrong adapters in the wrong shells. The remedy was to reduce the diameter of the fuse hole in the common shells. This adapter is only .825" in diameter at the threads whereas "normal" Hotchkiss shells are 1.05" in diameter at the threads.

Beautiful sea foam green patina with threads that look like they will screw back into a shell if desired.
