Just posted some nice items out of the South Carolina museum group I brought back yesterday. This may well be our last postings before the Wheaton Show next weekend (4/29) and Mansfield the week after (5/6-7). We hope to see you at one or both of the shows. We will have anice cselection of canister rounds at Mansfield. These are very difficult to ship safely so not currently listed here.

We continue to have occasional issues with emails sent using the buy me button on individual listings. If you do not receive a response back quickly, please email or call us directly via the information provided under the contacts tab. Thank you.

Description:This fuse is spectacular for its rarity and desirability. It just came in from South Carolina today, and as you can tell from the price -- which is what these went for back when Lawrence Christopher was selling a few that he got from a Tennessee dentist -- I am not eager to see it go. For those of you lucky enough to already have one of these, this is the type with the more pointed head shown on page 60 of Chuck Jones' book.
