Text in original Preserved Tanks In USA publication:

During World War II, Rock Island Arsenal received thousands of armoured vehicles to overhaul, of which this Sherman was one. It was retained, and put on display as a museum exhibit in 1948. It is believed to be have been assigned to the U.S. 4th Armored Division and was knocked out during the Battle of the Bulge. It shows considerable battle damage, including a hit on the gun which bent the barrel, and a large penetration of the right side of the turret. It has been field-modified with three large plates of armour welded to the glacis and transmission housing. These plates bear the marks of at least three hits that did not penetrate. This tank has its hatches open and a walkway has been welded to the top of the hull so that the interior can be seen more easily.
