Please Note: The American Digger Magazine inadvertently sent out show advertising saying that their Chattanooga Show was this coming weekend, July 20th. That is the weekend of the North South Trader's Show in Doswell, VA. The American Digger show is the following weekend, July 27th. BulletAndShell.com will be at both! Hope to see you there.

Description:1863 dated long pattern watercap fuse for use in huge spherical shells. For this reason these are sometimes called "monitor type" fuse adapters. They are significantly longer than the common watercap time fuse adapters. This is to reach further into the powder cavity of the shell for better ignition.

This one is clearly fired, probably into the Charleston defenses. I have only seen these with 1863 or 1862 date stamps.
