Nice looking fuze! You have to love the older proximity style fuzes with all the antennas sticking out in different directions. In the book "The deadly Fuze" that describes the manufacturing of the first artillery proximity fuzes, the author says that they kept the end use of the cone shaped part of the fuze secret by telling the people that made them that they were "anal probes".
