Default German aluminium fuse. Probably 8.8 cm?

Hi Folks, found today this aluminum fuse but left it in the woods. Better play safe... Does anyone of you guys know more about?

Yes, that appears to be a fuse for an "88". Be careful, it looks hot..... You may want to call someone to have it safely disposed of.....

You're right, it might be still dangerous and I left it back in the woods. I usually don't call the officials to avoid answering silly questions.
@ bigfreeze: yeah, long time no chat buddy, but now I'm back.. :like:

Hey man, good to see you back.

I think you should turn in things like that if you find them, what if a kid finds it after you?

Just tell them you found it on the surface while hiking.

You can alway's notice them anonymous if you don't want questions.
What if a kid finds this one later? Or a woods worker stumbles on it while working/digging? I wouldn't like to read about something like that in the newspapers if i left it behind.

When it's cleared it's gone forever.
