Text in original Preserved Tanks In Poland publication:

This T-34 is in poor condition; it is missing its mud flaps and other parts. Its label reads: “In 1943 a modified version of the T-34 tank was developed. In these newer tanks, which had larger turrets, an 85mm gun replaced the previously used 76.2mm guns. In 1944, the first T-34-85 tanks were introduced into service in the General Berling’s Army fighting on the Eastern Front. By war’s end 328 of these tanks were used by Polish units.
In 1951, mass production of the T-34-85 tanks began in Poland under a licensing agreement and by 1955 a total of 1,400 of these tanks had been built. In light of further improvements and modifications that had been made during the course of production, they were designated the T-34-85M. By the early 1960s, the T-34-85M was withdrawn from service in armoured units; it was successively replaced by newer model the T-54 and T-55 tank.”
