This looks a bit like a TDC Continental "S" headset. Can't really tell from the photos. The S headset had a octagon lock nut, decagon screwed race and a decagon bottom race. It also had a serrated distance piece, this is what I couldn't make out in the pictures.

Best wishes and be lucky. Michael Butler Huntingdon UK.
