Original post:

For the 75th anniversary of D-Day, I figured I would take some new pictures of this incredible piece.  I acquired this on ebay a little over a year ago, and it has been one of the centerpieces of my collection since.  Unfortunately I have no history to go with it, other than the location and date painted on it in typical souvenir fashion.  I hope you enjoy these new pictures:
