Text in original Preserved German Tanks publication:

This Jagdpanther has a plaque on its glacis plate that reads: “Built in 823 Armd Troops Wksp REME No.13 BAOR 1945”. It was number thirteen of a small batch of Panther tanks and Jagdpanthers built by 823 Armoured Troops Workshop, REME, in Germany in 1945 for trials. Some of the others still survive, including the Panthers at Bovington, BWB Koblenz in Germany, and Solingen in Germany. It was assembled at the MNH factory in Hanover; tool stowage is on the hull rear and engine deck (source: L. Archer). It has the late production idler wheels and engine deck (source: M. Hayward).

Text in Preserved German Tanks Update:

At the end of the war, when the Allies occupied Germany, a detachment of the Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers (REME) set up a workshop in one of the Panther factories and, with the help of the local workforce, completed the manufacture of a number of Panther tanks and Jagdpanthers. The plaque on the glacis of this Jagdpanther indicates that it was one of these vehicles; however, the plaque has been painted over and is no longer legible. It was put on the museum books in 1951.

Text in original Preserved Tanks In Britain publication:

This is a late production Jagdpanther with a two-piece gun barrel and a bolted mantlet.
