    I've cleaned it up a bit & here's a couple more pics that show the markings better . The stamps look like Japanese to me ? Thanks & hope this helps .

    It could be the base fuse for a Japanese Type 95 75mm APHE.

    I am more inclined to say that it is an assembly for booster and detonator (maybe detonator safety (the auxilary fuze for 75mm AA looks a bit similar)) used with non detonating fuze.
