This is an unopened pack of five Federal artillery paper time fuses. The original green colored paper wrapper is in great condition. The packet measures 3" wide, 2" tall and 5/8" deep. The Stamping on the paper is very legible and reads "FRANKFORD ARSENAL./1864/10 SECOND FUZES". Instructions for the removal of the fuzes are printed below that. The package is in good condition. There are no tears in the paper anywhere. There are two very small holes in the paper on the back side.The paper is slightly discolored on the front. The package retains all five small cotton tabs that protrude from the package. This is a great example of a Civil War Artilleryman's most integral components.
