US Register Updates / Trip Report April 2017
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: US Register Updates / Trip Report April 2017

I just came back from my annual AMPS trip and tank hunting tour, and can report the following:

New Milford CT, M3A1 light: Tank is SN 10131 and painted 3025340, which is correct. Don't know if that was taken off the internet or originally painted on the tank.

Winchester CT M3A1 light: I tried searching this group for info on this tank but could not find the discussion . . Didn't explore.

Plainfield CT M5A1 light: Serials were unreadable, but it had a turret with a welded-up pistol port. With the all-steel idler, I'm thinking it is an early Cadillac-Detroit tank.

Wolcott CT M4A3(76) HVSS: This was a DTA tank with a B2700 stamping on the glacis edge. The "CP" number was unreadable. The tank was built with HVSS, not converted.

Jessup PA M60A3: SN 3051A, no weld markings. Hull was originally M60A1 SN 7237 or 7257.

Olyphant PA M60A3: This is the ex-Throop tank with the dozer attachments. The Throop-Olyphant border is about 100 yards up the road. SN 3805A, RN not visible, Weld hidden under dozer pipes.

Dunmore PA M60A3: SN 4197A, RN 09A96968, weld MG-404 (?)

Freeland PA M60A2: SN 4599, RN JK003Q, Weld WF-99 on CBSS casting SER 84. There are apparently two Front Streets in the area. One is out of the town in a neighborhood where people take their old appliances and trash across the street from their houses and dump them into the woods. The tank isn't there. It is at the corner of Front & Birkbeck Streets, at the park.

Antes Fort PA M114: FWIW, 36 stamped under left rear lug, 44 under right.

Avis PA M60A3: SN _076A, RN JJ052R, Weld 33-180. That RN corresponds to SN 3076A. No pictures as it was after dark and raining.

Lock Haven PA M60A3: Couldn't read SN, RN stamped JJ0519, Weld MG-299. About a mile from the Avis tank. (There are at least a half-dozen M60A3s in Scranton Wilkes-Barre area.) The Register lists this as SN 2036A with JJ0519 painted on. The SN corresponding to the stamped RN is 3026A and the RN corresponding to 2036A is JJ0465, so it appears the SN in the Register is transposed. No pictures as it was after dark and raining.

Brockway PA M60A3: SN 2867A, RN JJ04WL, Weld W186.

If you want pictures, let me know.


The Garmin GPS file worked great. Can't wait for an update.

Thanks Kurt,

I will add the info ASAP.
As for the Garmin GPS files, that's the work of vagabond, but even so I'm happy it's useful.

Michel
