- Roy_A_LingleHi Neil! Hi Folks!
I stop by the Ft. Bliss M60A0 Friday on my way home from work.
Per Joe D's info on where to look for SN's and RN's, I think I found them.
Standing in front of the vehicle looking at it. The right tow lug has the number 59 on it. Looks like someone else had been looking for it also because the paint had been scrap away.
Checking the area below the right front headlight assemble, I was able to scrap a little paint away and found the RN to be 9B3093.
Unable to confirm the SN on the left rear hull/engine deck area. Way to much paint.
I tried to take pictures of the numbers, but I guess my little camera don't focus very well on things like that.
Serial Number: 59
. . .
Spot Reports from Ft. Bliss.
Sgt, Scouts Out!
Roy did you find that RN stamped somewhere on the Bliss example, or painted on?
- Neil_BaumgardnerKeep in mind they go as far back as the cavalry combat cars, Shermans & Stuarts, etc. Back then they were entirely numbers, no letters. At some point, I wonder if it was around '61, letters got introduced... I'm reasonably certain they were referred to as registration numbers way back in WWII and before, albeit colloquially as "USA" numbers.
