A question for the Chieftain or any other knowledgeable person. The following was posted on another forum I subscribe to, was wondering if anyone had the answer:

A local American Legion has a static display of an M47 Patton. Hatch was welded shut. They need to submit paperwork of condition/serial number/etc. to the controlling Agency to prove it's being used IAW loan program.

Where the **** is the serial number on this thing? I've been told it's on the inside, which is obviously a no-go since they do not have "easy" access to the interior.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

The Vermont Army Guard has an M47 in it's museum in Colchester Vermont. It was an armored unit originally. A lot of the museum staff are vets. They may be able to help you.

There is some information on the topic here: http://preservedtanks.com/Profile.aspx?UniqueID=1373

 

The tank on that page has the serial stamped into one of the frontal tow lugs.
