    It's extremely heavy and looks like bronze, but might just be really old brass. Pretty worn out and swivels in all directions. Nuclear warhead? Fancy pencil sharpener? Grape peeler?

      You Have a Vintage, Military Artillery Round Time Fuse. Probably WW2 era.

      Says pm the side too..Scovill Model 1907M Fuze.

      Very cool piece..

      Thats a ww1 -1914 scovill model 1907 fuze- it has a mechanical time adjustment. I dont know alot about military explosives but maybe you better read up on it as It detonates something ,most likely it hit but unexploded , ??

      See if this site helps you to narrow it down.

      If you missed it, I just posted 3 posts on my newly acquired trench art. I think these would go with those shells...

      Lots of great info there, Thanks , Yeah i heard about a guy that dug and collected old cannon balls until one blew up . Gotta be careful , Thats a cool fuze to display ,
    9. fortapache fortapache, 12 months ago
      Looks like the fuse is gone so nothing left to go boom. I think everyone here wants it.

      wow! Thank you so much kwqd, Izenglish, dav2no1, markalan702, and fortapache! i was close to putting it in the recycling! i think it must have partially exploded - see the way it flips up near the nose?
    11. dav2no1 dav2no1, 12 months ago
      Well...whats the story? You never told us where you got it? Don't leave us hanging....
    12. scottvez scottvez, 12 months ago
      I like these!

      Most likely a soldier souvenir at some point-- many like to collect battlefield remnants!

      Here is a similar piece fashioned into a trench art inkwell:

      Nice find!
    17. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 12 months ago
      This piece really doesn't fit into any of my collections, so i'll probably sell it.

      fortapache says: " ...I think everyone here wants it."

      I would not disagree...at least half of everyone here anyway, myself included... <LOL> What a WAY COOL thing, no matter where else it ends up CONGRATS on keeping it outta a junk pile! <applause>

      Thank you AnythingObscure. I know that sales talk is the big no! no! here, but it seems like the occasional link can't be all that horrible!
