German 3.7cm Kopfzunder Zerleger Pulver vereinfacht Fuse

This is the fuse off my 3.7cm H.E. round. It is a Kpf.Z.Zerl.Pv, very similar to the A.Z.39 used on the 5cm gun. It’s a direct action impact fuse. The designation means “Point detonation powder self-destruction nose fuse simplified”. The fuse is marked for Gritzner-Kayser AG in Karlsruhe-Durlach. It was manufactured in 1941.
