This is an excellent original Civil War cannonball fuze. This is the style that came from the Frankford Arsenal and would have originally had the wooden block with the paper label. On the side of the paper you can see the remnants of the number markings which denote the burn times of the paper fuses that were inside at one time. This one is an original 20 second fuze. The 20 second one is one of the tougher times to find. Not as many were made to burn so long in flight. The fuse is just a fraction over 2 inches in overall length and on the side in addition to the lettering it has the hash marks in case you needed to trim the fuze for a shorter burn time. It makes a fine display to put with your shell to show how they worked.
