    At least Norway used this S/19 fuze, but I think many other countries too.

    here is one S/17 on a 18 cm mortar shell but it has the same strange "1 mm" stamp (whatever it means):

    Hello, very interesting shell in nice condition! With "RP" marking it should be norwegian (or at least accepted in Norway) for sure.

    I think it's for the 7,5 cm M/01 Erhardt field gun. It's possible that the 17 second fuze has the same burning time as the 55 hectometer fuze so maybe just the scale is different.

    Most probably the fuze in the following thread is for the HE Shell of the same gun:
