Our next show will not be Gettysburg, but instead will be the Richmond Show the weekend of November 17-18. We are sorry not to be able to make G-burg, but really looking forward to Richmond.

We still have some electronic orders that do not get delivered via the website. We think it is a Captcha issue so please check that part of the inquiry form. If you do not receive a response from us quickly on an inquiry about an item we have listed, however, please email us.

U00560 - Confederate Archer percussion fuse

Item Number: U00560

Item Title: Confederate Archer percussion fuse

Price: $395

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.
