The capacity is on the low side and the curves do not match, I wonder if it is due to the age of the cell.
It can still deliver 20A, but with some voltage sag.

Conclusion
For its time is was a nice tool battery.
Notes and links
Vapcell told me that I was missing some cells in my comparator and they would be happy to supply them.
How is the test done and how to read the charts
How is a protected LiIon battery constructed
More about button top and flat top batteries
Compare to 18650 and other batteries
