Description:Proof positive that good ideas from the Civil War carried forward decades after the conflict ended. This is a watercap fuse and the insert screws in and out easily. It is also threaded to go in a Schenkl shell, not a typical brass bushing. A rare fuse and the last of its kind I have available to sell.
