This Patton is on display on a plinth beside Chaffee Avenue opposite another M48A2C, at the main entrance to Fort Knox. It was acquired by the museum from the Army in August 1972. Note that the plinth used to read “HOME OF CAVALRY & ARMOR” on its left side but this lettering was removed during the first half of 2010 (source: D. Moriarty).
