Text in original Preserved Tanks In USA publication:

According to museum staff both Fort Lewis Shermans came from Germany (source: N. Baumgardner). In 2000 they had been on display side by side next to an armour unit headquarters (source: K. Laughlin).
One of the hatches on this M4A1 is open and its interior appears to be largely complete; it retains its radial engine (source: C. Sherman). This markings on its transmission cover indicate that the cover was manufactured by American Steel Foundries, Granite Works (“[G]”), Illinois; it is a late production version (“E8543”, source: P.-O. Buan) with serial number 0818.
