    Hi Pierre, Here are the two styles. M1 and M1A1, sometimes I think the military named everything M1..LOL Here is a pic of two original M1 and M1A1 PRACTICE Mines (blue) and two repos i made.
    I love this pic of the soldier putting fuzes in the two style mines.

    WOW !!!

    Nice !

    I couldn't borrow a couple could I ? I am sure the local kids are hopping over my fence at night and using my garden as a meeting place. Would love to see their face when they stood on one of THOSE beauties !

    Thanks for the nice words. The hinges and screws are from original boxes found. Now that I bought a dozen originals, no need to make anymore.
