    Unknown German Fuse type....

    Hi All,

    I'm trying to ID a German fuse - the markings do not match any of my information on WW1 & WW2 fuse, which is mainly artillery focus.

    I'm thinking it could be a naval related bomb fuse or an aerial bomb one (the stamp looks like a "propeller)

    Markings:

    "Sp F 175 " on brass body

    "D" on nose

    "C" "B" "A" on body

    All thoughts welcome on vintage and function.
    Thanks
    Cheers
    Drew
    (Yes I did google "Sp F" etc)

    Kz11 / Harry,

    Gentlemen, thank you very much for the information!!!

    The fuse in the link that Kz11 provided was all brass, whereas the one shown is composite of both brass and alloy - which I would say be late WW1 when Germany was starting to run low on resources.

    Ho Humm, I better go and buy some more "study" books!
    Cheers
    Drew

    Hi Drew,

    There's at least 1 other of these fuzes in Australia!
    Thanks to your thread I have been able to identify this nice fuze for Ron.
    We think the "17" on this one is for 1917. The cap is a nice accessory.

    Cheers, Graeme

    This came to Ron via a very well known Melbourne collector of German ordnance.
