NGC 7384 is a star about 5 arcmin southeast of NGC 7383. Both objects were found by LdR; while N7383 has been measured, the only reference to N7384 in his monograph is in the sketch of the group around N7385 and N7386. Dreyer unfortunately got the offset wrong for his description of the object (for north following, read south following), but the position implies the right direction.
However, having said all that, I have to say that there is not one star near the position, but five. These are spread over an area of one by two arcmin, and form two triangles with a single star at the common vertex in the middle of the group. It is this star that I've entered in the main table, but the "correct" object could be any of the others.
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a galaxy. Their coded description reads STEL.
