      I suspect Freeman Field Recovery Teams "borrowed" that photo from a webpage that P-O & I did about Fisher M4A3(75)W Shermans ...
       
       
      I came across the pix at the US Archives & they show turrets left over from the retriever conversion program at Baldwin Locomotive Works.
      They are an example of WW II recycling.  
      Fisher took some of those turrets & reused them on some late production M4A3(75)Ws.
