CIVIL WAR ARTILLERY PROJECTILE FUSE PACKETS – FRANKFORD ARSENAL – SEALED IN EXCELLENT CONDITION - DATED 1863 & 1864:  These original packets of US Artillery Timed Fuses were produced at the Frankford Arsenal and have survived in excellent condition.  All of these packets are still sealed in the original bright colored paper wrappers which allowed the gunners to identify at a glance the time of the fuse each packet contained, and all of the original cloth pull tapes are present and intact.  The labels are all legible with no loss of text.  These are very attractive packets in excellent condition to add to your condition.   

Note the spelling of “FUZE” in the label - “fuze” being the contemporary spelling of the word. 

I have the following packets available, each individually listed below with accompanying photographs.

 

NO. 1  FRANKFORD ARSENAL 1863 8 SECOND FUSE PACKET: (0404) $90

 

NO. 2  FRANKFORD ARSENAL 1863 5 SECOND FUSE PACKET: (0405) $90

 

NO. 3  CIVIL WAR 10 SECOND FUSE PACKET:  An original Civil War Artillery Shell Fuse Packet, wrapped in brown paper with the ink stamped notation, "10.S", indicating it contains 10 second fuses.  The paper packet is in excellent condition, appearing never to have been opened and with the original string tie intact.  The only sign of wear or aging is a tiny pin hole at the bottom edge of the front of the packet where the paper has rubbed against the end of one of the fuses.  Overall, an excellent specimen.  (0702)  $75

 

NO. 4  FRANKFORD ARSENAL 1864 25 SECOND FUSE PACKET:  SOLD

NO. 5  FRANKFORD ARSENAL 1864 20 SECOND FUSE PACKET:  SOLD
