Type: Parrott time fuse adapter with later head flange
Shell Type: Parrott
Book: Jones page 77
Location Recovered: Richmond defenses
Description:Nice condition white metal Parrott time fuse. Threads are good and the head flange is intact which is uncommon as these white metal fuses are prone to deteriorate in the ground. The head flange was added as the war progressed to prevent premature detonation of the shell from the cannon flame penetrating around the outside of the fuse adapter.
