Description:Nice, complete dug Parrott percussion fuse. This is a tough fuse to find in complete condition. It replaced the 2 piece Parrott percussion fuses which had a slider that sat on a shelf in the shell but was prone to getting askew and not hitting the anvil cap dead on. Faced with a dud of a fuse but a lot of shells made with the ledge, Parrott made this version with a tapered bottom to go through the hole in the ledge. As the shell stocks were depleted, new ones didn't have the ledge and so most of the fuses of this type have a straight body without a taper.

Complete fuse with slider inside. Anvil cap has never been unscrewed since it was made.
