I bought an array of items from ww1 about a year ago and whilst looking at them recently I decided to post them on Reddit to see if people could identify them. One particular object is a fuse for a shell and i have been told that i should see an expert to see if its armed, ( i don’t know where to find an expert)
I was told to give it to the authorities and i was also told that it is a dummy fuse therefore inert and i was wondering if anyone could confirm if its live or not and what fuse it is. To be honest I’m too scared to call up the authorities saying i might have an unexploded fuse. I was advised to use this forum for help and it would bring great comfort if someone could help me find out if it is dangerous or not. I’ll put the links to the pictures below and thank you for your time.
