Hi Folks!

Per the rear tow lugs, SN is 1232.
One thing I noticed is the mounting points for the A frame have been removed off the left side of the turret.

I'm not sure the jib crane lugs were ever removed from turrets that had them, rather my guess is that they were never applied. The turret castings had flat spots cast-in to aid their location and welding.

Hi Folks!

I also found the serial number on the front upper slope just below the bow machine gun opening.
