Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

This Ausf M was used against, and captured by, the Third US Army during the war. It is missing the front of its superstructure, and all of its return rollers. It is also missing its main armament and may therefore have seen use as a Munitionspanzer.

Text in Preserved German Tanks Update:

This vehicle was transferred from the Patton Museum at Fort Knox in 2010; it had previously been on show in Keyes Park (source: D. Moriarty/AFVNDB). In October 2013 it was on display in Cannon Walk and appeared to have recently been refurbished and repainted.
