This M4 is an early production version, retrofitted with appliqué armour on its hull and turret. Its suspension is damaged and its turret is dislodged. During the tank battle at Overloon, 7 US Tank Division, following several unsuccessful frontal attacks on Overloon, attempted a pincer movement between Overloon and Vierlingsbeek to encircle the German troops there. The Americans encountered fierce resistance however, notably from an 88mm anti-tank gun manned by Luftwaffe personnel (Luftwaffefestungsbataillon X) in position near Hattert Castle. Practically all of the tanks of the battalion carrying out this operation were put out of action by the German 75mm guns and this 88mm gun on 4 October 1944.
This M4 received two direct hits from a 75mm gun (on the lower right side of the hull) and one from the 88mm gun (on the bottom right edge of the turret). The suspension bogie between the two 75mm penetrations is now missing. There is a corresponding exit hole for one of the 75mm penetrations (on the lower right side of the hull).
The crew were killed and are buried in the American cemetery of Henry-Chapelle near Verviers in Belgium.
