This M47 is on display in front of VFW Post 5710; it is mounted on a concrete pad, surrounded by railing, beside the car park. It is a late production vehicle with T-shaped muzzle brake. It also has prominent rain gutters on the turret sides which likely indicate it is an ex-Italian Army vehicle returned to the US.
