Would someone help me with id'ing this round? From what I have seen online it appears to be a 37mm round. Only markings are a 42 10 on the bottom. Thanks for the help,  Ken

What you have first is a solid shot AP round. By your rough measurements of the diameter, 2 3/8th inches, it would convert to 60 mm. Knowing 57mm is an official caliber, I would say you have a 57mm AP round ( solid shot) with a missing driving band. Many  projectiles of that era had the “ M” number, type, date, lot, etc engraved on the driving band- yours is missing.
