    WW1 Russian Time Fuzes

    Hello, I have these two fuzes and although they look very Russian to me, I have no idea on which shell they were used (and which gun). Could someone help? Thanks
    The big one is mainly made of brass and has no marks what so ever, the second one has been turned into an inkwell, but still looks good. However I am unsure of the brass bit on the side.

    The brass bit on the pic 78 is a clamp holding the 1st and 3rd time ring together. Completely genuine.

    The ogive the 30 second fuze sits in is also genuine. it is a front ogive of either 42 or 48 line shrapnel (107 mm or 122 mm).

    Fabulous shells. If someone has one he's willing to part with, I know a good home...
