This M47 is believed to have been found at Fort Knox and acquired by the museum in 1978. It was seen in the Boatwright Maintenance Area in 1983, with areas on the glacis and left turret side marked up as though it was to be cut open for display. However, a comparison of photographs indicates that it is unlikely to be the same cutaway M47 that was later displayed in the museum for some years (particular differences include the muzzle brake and headlamps).
