    19th Century Fuze – German?

    I’ve not seen this type of brass time fuze illustrated anywhere before; there are no markings at all – can anyone identify it please? Depotman

    It's a Krupp double Action fuze with the transport plug inserted. Denmark had a very similar model but not exactly the same. The Netherlands also had a very similar fuze but 1% difference remaining.

    The three holes at 120° angle are unusual. Maybe they are there for an early universal shell (separate ignition channels for time ignition and percussion ignition)

    Many thanks Alpini - do you have a date for the fuze? Depotman
