Text in original Preserved Soviet Tanks publication:

This tank is particularly interesting in that it is one of the original production batch of IS-3’s without side skirts or later modifications. The tank has recently been restored to original condition.

Text in original Preserved Tanks In Poland publication:

Poland received two IS-3s for trials in 1946, but never adopted the type for service use; this IS-3 is likely to have been one of those vehicles.
