Also part of my day trip today. It's a shame this is out with all hatches open. Close enough to the Atlantic Ocean for salt air to eat it up even faster! Many casting marks and stamped numbers on this vehicle. Rick

I guess that a little plate on the tank mentions that it is the first Sherman tank to enter in Berlin in 1945?

Plate is worn to near "unreadable", first tank in Berlin would have been Soviet! The photo is actually to depict the stamped numbers on the middle front of the hull. Rick
