Labeled Civil War Wooden Confederate Artillery Shell Fuse Adapter Athens 1863 For Sale

Labeled Civil War Wooden Confederate Artillery Shell Fuse Adapter Athens 1863

Being offered is a genuine American Civil War era wooden artillery shell fuse adapter.This adapter is definitely Confederate and was taken from a broken paper package labeled as follows:
FUSE ADAPTER PLUGQUANTITY 10FOR SPHERICAL CASE & SHELL UP TO 24 PDR1863ATHENS BOBBIN WORKS
The state is not specified, but I believe the town to be Athens Georgia. The paper package is shownin the last 2 photosfor reference only and is currently not for sale. This sale is for 1 fuse adapter from the broken package.
The fuse adapter has a rarely seen dust cover label in red and white with the instructions "PUNCH" "REAM" around a central star. The label seems to have some sort of wax or varnish coating. The paper has darkened and the red is faded slightly more than the photos suggest (my camera keeps darkening the red in the photos).
The small fuse hole is drilled from both ends leaving a wooden 'bulkhead' that allowed the shell to be loaded with the fuse adapter acting as a stopper so the loaded shell could be safely transported. Just before use, this 'bulkhead' was punched into the shell and a tapered fuse reamer was used to prepare the hole for the tapered fuse. This innovation was exclusive to Confederate ordnance.
This fuse adapter was apparently never installed. The dimensions are roughly (accurate to 1/16 inches) 1-3/8 inches long, 15/16 inches diameter on large end, 13/16 inches diameter on the small end. The fuse holes are less than 1/2 inch diameter.
The adapter was part of a small cache of Civil War artillery-related items I purchased last year. The items were crated and apparently untouched for over a century. I sold some of the items and I am now selling this adapter on consignment. I am not in possession of the original packaging.civil war cannon napoleon field gun artillery shell rifle fuse fuze
