Identification of WW2 Shell Casing


Can someone please help me learn more about this? I cannot find out anything about KTC or the Lot 3 3 W S either. I am very interested to learn more about where this came from. Please any and all information about this is welcome. I can post more pictures if needed. The casing is about a foot long.

Found on a beach in Charleston SC

Thank you
