This is an antique WW1 British relic brass fuse sourced from the Somme region in France and ideal for use as a paperweight. This piece of genuine militaria memorabilia has been fired so will show impact damage as you would expect. This is an artefact from World War One, also known as The Great War which would make an unusual Grandfather gift; it weighs a hefty 0.8kg. this would also be an unusual gift for a militaria collector. Relics from WW1 are still being unearthed today, even over 100 years after the end of the war, by farmers across the Battlefields of the Somme. This relic has some damage to one side, possibly from when it was fired or when a farm machine cut into it as it was unearthed. It has the pinking caused from age; as brass corrodes, it can undergo dezincification, a process in which zinc is lost and copper is left behind. This causes the brass to turn a pink colour in places.
