This tank was acquired by the museum in 1972. Before being moved to Keyes Park, it was on display beside Brave Rifles Regiment Avenue opposite an M48 ({UID:1221}). It is fitted with extended end connectors on its tracks. On 17 June 2010 it was moved off its pad in Keyes Park and moved to the parking lot for the Crittenberger School (source: G. Walden). It was transferred to the Richardson Motor Pool in the second week of July 2010 (source: D. Moriarty). It was transported by train from Fort Knox to Fort Benning on 23 October 2010.
