We just picked up a couple collections of artillery and other relics we are starting to list. Note that there will be more than artillery, bullets and fuses listed. We have buttons, camp items, US plates, etc.

Mansfield, Ohio Show was good as always. Our next show will be in Brandon, MS on June 8 and 9.

We continue to experience intermittent delivery of order emails, so it's wise to email us directly at cwbullet@hotmail.com and carl@sitherwood.com to be sure your order gets through. Thank you for your patience while we try to address this.

U00560 - Confederate Archer percussion fuse
Sorry, this item is no longer available!



Item Number: U00560

Item Title: Confederate Archer percussion fuse

Price: $350

Shipping: Not included

Provenance: CS

Type: Archer

Shell Type:

Thread Diameter:

Thread Count:

Book: Jones page 56

Location Recovered: Spanish Fort, Alabama

Description:Highly desirable and hard-to-find Archer percussion fuse. This is the type shown in Chuck Jones' fuse book on page 56.

This fuse is clearly fired and the striker is jammed forward under the fuse head that acted as the anvil cap. The base plug plug is missing although most of the threads for it are intact in the fuse body.

The threads are in good shape generally and with a modest effort I am sure this fuse could be screwed into a shell for display.
