Excavated Federal artillery fuse adapter known as a naval watercap fuse and is a fired specimen. Of wartime design, this tapered, cylindrical-shaped brass fuse adapter is the type utilized by the U.S. Navy in its big guns.

The top flange of the fuse adapter measures about 1 ¼” in diameter and the fuse is 2 3/8” long.  There are two square notches to accommodate a spanner wrench on the top flange.  No anvil cap is present. Some rust and corrosion is on the flange head and markings are only partially visible. “ORD.D.” [small anchor] / 186_” (last number is 2 or 3).

Copper has acquired a pleasing green patina overall. Unknown recovery location.   [jet]  [ph:L]
