Here's a bouncing betty landmine I bought on ebay a while back, painted with "Normandy Beach" and "June 6 1944".  I have no other history on it unfortunately.  The original post can be found here: http://www.usmilitar...betty-landmine/

I love that piece. Wish we had the vet info but still so iconic. Thanks for sharing.
