Again, this is not my area of expertise, but thought the item was cool. My friend also needed money, but I hope I didn’t over pay for this specimen.
The history I have on this fuze is: my friends grandfather worked at McKinnon Industries in St. Catharines Ontario as a machinist, and this has been in his family for a while.
According to my research, McKinnon Industries LTD began making percussion fuses in 1939 for WWII efforts.
The only stamp on this fuze is as follows:
No 119 I MI/C 4/40
Given the “4/40” portion of the stamp, I am assuming this was produced April of 1940?
Could the “MI/C” portion of stamp be contributed to McKinnon Industries?
Any information on this piece would be appreciated!
