[quote=“AndyD”]Thanks for that EOD, much appreciated!
I’d be interested in seeing anything else you have regarding this particular fuze.
Info that I’ve heard from other collectors tells me that this fuze is quite hard to obtain, is this true?
Just after I bought it I managed (with a lot of care & patience!) to loosen the rings and strip it down, so now the timing ring moves freely.
I bought this example,along with a mint example Number 80 for the cheap price of $35 for the pair.
Here are pics of the number 80.
It is certainly hard to find but I have one and know at least three to four others (and alsosome other Krupp fuzes with arab markings).
Here the exact patent drawing for your fuze from 1900. It has the second safety plunger for the impact section. In the drawing it is marked “H”.
