Maybe. I agree that the last digit is '1'. The mantlet seems to be reinforced which should exclude '821' and '831' as candidates. But does 811's turret number sit lower on the side wall than we see here?

To me it seems very clear that Tiger 800 when it came back in summer was renumbered S01.
I don't think that anybody has said this yet.... Tiger 800 has the "bent line" side skirts. It is the only Tiger of the first 10 with these skirts. And we find the same skirts on Tiger S01.
The chassis numbers for all of the first 10 Tigers are listed in Ron Klages' book. The lowest number is 250049. All of the other 9 Tigers come in the 70s and the 80s. We do expect the "straight line" side skirts to be introduced in time for the later Tigers.
Therefore 800 is S01 and it is chassis number 250049.
