You would need to show us the headstamp of that one.

I think I know what it is but do not want to put out guesswork when all we need is visible on the hs.

Yes, it is a 37x265B case for the Flak 18, Flak 36 or Flak 43.
These were anti-aircraft guns.
And then there was the 3,7cm BK which was an aircraft gun and basically was a modified Flak 18.
