This M4A1 is in a poor and rusted condition. It is missing its gun, mantlet, tracks and many other parts. The emblem on the glacis indicates that the upper hull was manufactured by General Steel, which provided castings exclusively to Pressed Steel Car for the M4A1 and Montreal Locomotive for the Grizzly (source: Sherman Minutia). The shape of bow MG cover and the presence of cast hull lifting rings tend to confirm it was built by Pressed Steel Car (source: P.-O. Buan/AFVNDB).
