Found this at the Flea Market Saturday....once a stein...now a mug...lid and attachment gone unfortunately.

 

Nice nekkid chick lithophane in the bottom (common in US Post War steins, not common (as in almost always means its a fake, in German wartime and earlier steins)

 

1954 dated, named, and the neatest thing in my book is the 868th was a unit equipped with the 280mm M65 cannon, Atomic Annie, made to shoot a tactical nuke projectile!
