Hello,
Thank you for your information, you have been added to my database. I believe it was manufactured in mid-September 1942 and should have a hood number between 291910 and 291992 with USA as a prefix. Be sure and order a build card to know for sure!

Ernie,
I does appear to be a rebuilt 55 with the gun chassis removed. Look for extra bracing in the frame to know for sure
your full body tag number is: 4286-9404, if it was a true 52 it would have been:4290-9404
