Thanks to all for the help.  Anyone have a ww1 cutback fuse they want to part with?

The early toggle type fuze was discarded due to many problems in its functioning. The cut back was introduced and used late war. Both styles are correct.18F64FB0-CD98-449F-BE50-3D4F006207DF.jpeg.c2fefa65e70325095602c16abe5243bf.jpeg

Your correct, I got confused with the nomenclature. When the cutback fuze was starting to be used, they used surplus MK1 bodies. But according to sources, once they put the cutback fuze on the MK1 bodies the new nomenclature of MK2 was used. So they were then technically not a MK1 anymore but a MK2.
