Hi Joe,

>I just put some pictures of a Sherman Easy 8, I think, on my web site.

That is a BEAUTIFUL example of a Medium Tank M4A3 (76) HVSS or more
likely Medium Tank M4A3 (76) W HVSS. The "W" stood for Wet Storage,
which was a safety measure to prevent stored rounds from cooking off in
case of a hit.

This was commonly called the Easy 8 because the prototype was designated
M4A3E8. There were other variants of Shermans, but this was the most
common one.

That is an example the museum should be quite proud of!
