This is a WW1 era RPPC (AZO stamp box) of three US soldiers with three Renault FT tanks. The tanks all show a camo paint pattern, so they may have actully seen combat.
The Renault FT was developed in 1917, with the majority being produced in 1918. The French made about 3,600 of these, of which a little over 500 were used by American Forces.
General Patton's US Light Tank Brigade was entirely equipped with this tank and they saw battle at St Mihiel and Meuse- Argonne.
It is unusual to see RPPCs of these early tanks.
