    Early Brass 3 ring time fuze

    Can anyone identify this fuze - highly polished and no markings visible? Thanks, Depotman.

    Hello,

    it's again a Krupp fuze - this time a S/35. Because of it's condition it's nearly impossible to guess which country was the "user". Known countries for this fuze are Turkey and the Netherlands (my biggest guess for this one here). Many other countries had the S/35 too like Italy, Belgium but in a slightly different shape and different material combination. And I guess I know only very few of all countries because nobody has documents for example about all the south american countries...

    It took me a while for searching but I found this nice post from Bonnex again:

    Still wondering why Vickers made this good drawing of the S/35? Maybe they produced them too?


    //Edit: the dutch type of this fuze has a different "Zero" pointer. But the belgian S/50 is not far from your fuze so maybe not a S/35 (but the construction remains the same):

    I think it is the Dutch Tijdschokbuis No. 7.

    @Greif is right! I did see something which is not existing (red), but I should see the green:
