This tank was acquired by the museum in 1972 and for many years was on display in front of the south end of Marshall Hall. It is fitted with extended end connectors on its tracks, and is missing its muzzle-brake. On 4 August 2010 it was transferred by HETT (Heavy Equipment and Truck and Transport) to Richardson Motor Pool (source: ArmorForTheAges.com).
