That is a Dietz No.32 road flare, they came in sets of three in a storage box and used to warn motorists of a disabled vehicle as required by some state laws. I wouldn't consider them scarce. A complete set in the box might have some value versus this single piece. W.T.Kirkmans' site states they were introduced in 1930 but I have no idea when they were dropped from the Dietz catalogs.
