Text in original Preserved Tanks In USA publication:

This M47 was displayed on post for a number of years, possibly near Serio Hall. It was then displayed for some years in the museum with its glacis and left turret side cut away in order to show its interior, and in about 2002 it was pulled out of the museum and moved to Richardson Motor Pool. (Source: D. Moriarty).
This M47 has an unusual cast muzzle brake which indicates it was probably one of the original pilot vehicles of the M47 series.
