caption reads "Murray Baker, third from left, along with Gen. John J. Pershing stand outside the East Peoria Holt Plant next to a British tank in 1925. The Holt tractor served as the inspiration for the development of the British tank in World War I."

She's obviously in nice condition, any idea what happened to her?

Mock-ups, I'd say, as they're in a female sponson & has a pair in the sponson too! 

We shipped 10 MkIV tanks to the USA, however, only 1 was preserved, serial number of 4633.

It's quite possibly this one.

Why were 10 MK IV tanks shipped to the USA? Are those in addition to Britannia?

I work for a subsidiary of Caterpillar here in the US, I’ll ask their historical society if they can add any information
