These are neat! This is the small pack of cannonball time fuses that were made by the Frankford Arsenal. They hold 2 of the time fuses inside and you can still see the remnants of the "25" stamping in two places. These markings were so the cannoneer knew what was inside. This means that that the fuse would burn for 25 seconds until it burns into the cavity to ignite the explosion. These paper fuzes would have been inserted into the cannon shells to burn down like a candle wick and explode at the right time. The overall size of this pack measures 2 inches by 1-1/4th inches by 7-/8ths inches. This pack is in very nice shape.
