      The M4A3 in Ocala, Florida has the plate and a 76mm M1A1c or M1A2 cannon in a similar installation.

      There is a M4A1 Sherman in Live Oak, Fla that is done the exact same way.

      I've seen one like this elsewhere. The mantle, it's armor and
      the barrel were taken out for whatever reason. A flat steel plate was
      put in it's place with what looks like a piece of pipe centered and
      held with the travel-lock. I've seen another that used a 76mm
      barrel, sans muzzlebreak, that was welded into the middle of a
      flat steel plate. It's a real turret, just missing the weaponry.
