Description:Its been a while since we've had one of these with a nice, crisp letter stamp in the base. This one is marked with a clear "F" highlighted in easily removable chalk. Some people think the F is for the Fayetteville Arsenal, while others think it is an inspector stamp associated with a particular manufacturing site. We are nearly positive the Q stamped ones come from Samson & Pae in Richmond. The other letters known are "I" and "C". While all letter stamps are uncommon and found only in about 5% of these fuses, "Q" is the most common and "C" the least.
