Combination percussion timed fuse Schenkel! cleaned up nicely and will be back to try and see if we can't scare up another one! Thanks for looking and happy hunting to everybody!

    Nice finds. Just a question, could the intact one pose a danger since it was not exploded?

    theoretically yes, if you mishandled it by throwing it in a fire or drilled it improperly it could explode but if handled with reasonable common sense it presents no inordinate hazard

    is there a safe way to disarm it?

    You mention throwing it in a fire, what if your house catches fire?
