Description:Long, tapered pattern of the Parrott time fuse adapter. This was made to screw into a shell and avoid the slider ledge of the early Parrott shells. The early 2pc Parrott percussion fuse relied on a slider that sat on a ledge. This was a bad design and subsequently abolished, but these early shells were in widespread use and required a time fuse adapter that would fit into them.

Nice threads on this dug fuse. You can faintly see a "W" on the head which is thought to be for "West Point Fundry" which was Parrott's factory across the river from the US Military Academy at West Point, NY
