Text in original Preserved Tanks In USA publication:

This M4 has the remains of wading trunks on the back and some unusual fittings on the differential housing (source: J. DeMarco/G104). Its serial number identifies it as being manufactured by the American Locomotive Company in 1943. It is currently missing its main armament and tracks. It was seen in October 2003 with main armament and rubber-block tracks (with extended end connectors), but by February 2005 the main armament and mantlet had been removed. It has large diameter penetrations in the front of the turret (through the bottom edge of the mantlet), the top left edge of the turret, and through the co-driver’s hatch, probably indicating damage from time on a firing range.
