      Hi Brandon,
      Thanks to you & Andre for the info about the M4A4 in Chittlehampton, Devon!

      There aren't too many M4s in North America.
      The Sherman at the CAF Museum in Midland, Texas is one of the few.
      Don't know the serial number, but judging by the look of it, I'd say it was built
      by Pressed Steel Car in your old hometown, Chicago.

        Something is wrong about that turret . The mantlet-armor
        and any pivot seem to be missing , and the barrel looks fake .
        Possible someone built a mockup ? More than likely .

          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.

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