    I own a WW2 vintage signal flare. It is marked as follows:

    SIGNAL, AIRCRAFT AN-M37

    DOUBLE-STAR

    (Flaming Bomb ordinance symbol)

    LOT - NFC - 27

    7/43 (which I assume is month and year of mfg).

    It is a 37mm flare, tan in color, with a red disk on the end marked "RED RED". Primer is marked W.R.A.CO NEW No. 4.

    Looks like a REALLY big shotgun shell.

    Any idea on value. A google search yielded me a little info, but nothing on a value, and I couldn't find an exact match for sale anywhere. Can't imagine too many of these are still around, especially those made during the height of the war...
