Mystery tow lug with SN - Sherman?
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Mystery tow lug with SN - Sherman?

I took this pic at Tankland on Friday, but its out of order (inbetween pics of the M53 and the second M47 Patton), so I'm not 100% sure what it belongs to... I think it must belong to the M4A3 or M4A3E8 Sherman... I'm pretty certain it didnt belong to the 105, since it had a grill that prevented easy access to the tow lugs...



Ya'll agree its a Sherman tow lug?

Neil,

Certainly looks like it!

What's the number on it? 74560?

Regards,
Hanno

Yes, I think so... Unfortunately I'm not completely sure whether its the M4A3(75) or the M4A3E8... Would the SN indicate?

S/N 74650 should be an M4A3(105) but most of them were converted to M4A3(76) HVSS. Are there weld scars on the glacis from a repositioned travel lock or where the aiming post bracket was removed?
