    Hi Tim,
    I rechecked the 20mm round in the sun today and it does have decernable markings. You can see from the pics condition is not great.

    Wartime British-made 20mm cartridge headstamps for comparison.
    Hispano (20x110) on the left, Oerlikon (20x110RB) on the right.

    LUCKYSTRIKE, your "0" looks, from the photo, to be next to a "2" and "mm", I know this sounds silly but can you measure across the center of the rim for me?
    Cheers, it might help identify the shell, Simon.

    As a note I've just found an "ST" marked 20mm shell on the web, not much info, but here's the link:-

    The spark plug is a American AC sparkplug. They also made .50 calibre Browning M2AC and M2HB guns.

    ST is usually found on 20mm cases made at ROF Steeton, Yorkshire.

    I found this quite intresting so I did 5 minutes of diging on line and Manford L foltz is still alive as far as my research reveals.

    I also have a phone number and address, it must be him as everything fits. Would you like the details off via pm?
