Subject: Primacord safety fuse

Primacord safety fuse

From: Beth Heller <bheller>
Date: Monday, July 26, 2004
I am, once again, doing an internship/consultancy high in the Rocky
Mountains.  The Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum director has
asked me for storage and exhibit recommendations for a 500 foot reel
of Ensign-Bickford Co. Primacord safety fuse, used in the town's
mining operations.  It is in its original cardboard box, and is
labeled "handle carefully", and resides in a cold storage shed at
9,000 feet altitude.  I am guessing cool, dry, dark, and unshaken,
never exhibited, and possibly rehoused, but hoped someone might have
more insight, since my field is book and paper rather than objects.
