In this occasion you can be the owner of two great armoured jewels from World War II time. Both of them are M4 Sherman medium tanks. M4 Sherman medium tank is the most quintessentially American tank ever conceived and the most numerous battle medium tank used by the United States and some of the other Western Allies in World War II. 

Some tank crews referred to the American M4 Sherman tank as a "death trap." Others, like Gen. George Patton, believed that the Sherman helped win World War II. The M4 Sherman proved to be reliable, relatively cheap to produce and available in great numbers, almost 50,000 units were produced during the war. The relative ease of production allowed large numbers of the M4 to be manufactured, and significant investment in tank recovery and repair units allowed disabled vehicles to be repaired and returned to service quickly.

The first of these is coming from a private museum collection, and it's a M4A1E8. It mounts a 76 mm deactivated main gun with St Etienne proof house certificate, never stripped, fully complete with all impossible to spot accessories including dashboard and radial 9 cylinder original engine. The second of these is an exceptional undamaged M34A1, which mounts a 75 mm deactivated main gun. It comes with Chevron steel tracks.
