M3 update for Shaddock...
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: M3 update for Shaddock...

This M3 Lee, is located at 4ID museum and I saw you have it posted. However I didn't know just how much you had on this particular vehicle so I decided to start some research on it. Just a quick look at it and I could see that it still has an engine,(radial). Both barrels seem to have been torched to make them in-operable. The rear tow lugs both have 4428 stamped into them but the differatial coevr up front has 3411 stamped. I suspect that the diff cover is from another M3/M4 possibly. Does anyone else see anything of note? Once I get more detailed information on this vehicle, I will add it to this post.

Hi Jeff:

S/N 4428 should have R/N 3058019 by my reckoning, but Joe probably has the definitive info.

The tow lugs are the right place for the S/N, and this tank has the appropriate late features like the grouser box on the glacis, driver's periscope, and engine compartment rear.

Hey Kurt, good to hear from you again,
I planned on sending this info to Joe very shortly and see what his take on the info is. However my parents are in town for a visit so I dont have much time for the computer, I'm lucky to get on here now.
I've found most Reg numbers on the sides of armor are bogus. I just don't understand why museums don't research what they have better, you'd think they would want to represent the vehicles acurately as possible.

I do not know about conversion to command tanks- in fact that was new to me-, but the majority of M3s lived on as ARVs and artillery tractors.
