    I'm sorry , but I think I do not understand.
    I was told by a Dutch collector the type om the picture below is Gruson manufacture, so German. As far as I know Germans never used the strips type powder, that's typical French. As it is a German shell (If I was told correct) I placed it on a German shellcase.
    The cartboard packaging of the explosive charge in the projectile makes sense, hence the screwed in base of the projectile.
    The booster cannot be of the type with the brass screwed in housing with and a red copper detonator inside, as there is no way to screw this combunation in the base of this fuze with this fuze.

    Please correct me if I am wrong

    Thanks in advance,
    Regards, DJH
