    Another Pre WW1 Fuze - What Is It?

    Can anyone identify this fuze please? It's markings are quite faint, but I think the time ring is 2 - 53; and the base looks like 11.1908 and E.G.4. Many thanks, Depotman.

    Could it be a E.C. 4 ?

    yes for sure Schneider E.C.4

    Could the max value on the scale be 58 instead of 53?

    Probably E.C.4. - the font is confusing! Depotman

    Yes it could be - the numbers are VERY worn! Depotman

    Hello,

    I'm very interested to know exact marking for max scale.
    I know Schneider EC4 graduated to 50 or 56 (post ww1).

    Regards
    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by EOD personnel .

    Thank-you for your interest - I have looked again with a very good magnifying glass and varying light, and the last mark is definitely 58. Regards, Depotman

    Hi,
    is there a list of Schneiders E.C. fuzes?
    The EC 5 bis and EC 6 are known here from Russian WW I shrapnels.
    Thanks,
    Bob
