This is the 37mm WWII Era International Signal or Flare gun some collectors refer to as the “Model 52”, not because it was designed in 1952, but at one time was part of the International No. 52 marine distress signal kit.
Break open operation, featuring brass and nickel construction. Embossed on both sides of the crosshatch grip in raised letters: INTERNATIONAL FLARE SIGNAL DIV, 10 3/4 inch overall length with an 8 3/8 inch barrel.
