Photos a bit fuzzy but M4A2? marking with the 30 is on a flat panel and on an A2 its more rounded on the edge but the other side of the tank is not in shot.

Pullman Standard Car Co.
American Locomotive Co.
Baldwin Locomotive Works
Federal Machine and Welder Co

We have two listed as Pressed Steel, so I guess it is better to continue to use that one

I can agree with dutchy that it is most likely the M4A2 'Sherman' from 1942.
Here is the picture which I improved a bit:

This version was produced by a number of companies:
- Fisher Tank Arsenal
- Pullman Standard Car Co.
- American Locomotive Co.
- Baldwin Locomotive Works
- Federal Machine and Welder Co.

As Fisher produced most M4A2 I suggest to use that name.

Pressed Steel only produced the M4 and M4A1.

the "30" is in black on a yellow circle..thats the bridge classification plate for crossing bailey bridges...this mark indicates the tank to be British crewed..the US didnt have this marking.
