Item No. AR2212MS Category


Grouping of artillery fuses from the Allegany Arsenal. These are 8 second and 12 second fuses with 5 fuses in each pack. The paper fuses would have been inserted into the cannon shells to burn down like a candle wick and explode at the desired time. This pattern was issued by the Allegheny Arsenal of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. These have clear lettering on the outside of the pack denoting their fuse length. The other package contains a single 25 second and one 30 second fuse. Retained in the original brown paper wrapping and string tie. Nice little set for your artillery display.
