The body of the beer stein is a smooth, black glazed, high quality stoneware decorated with a platinum wrap around design. Crafted in tribute to those who fought on June 6, 1944 this stein details the participation of the Allied countries that invaded the coast of Normandy that day.

Spanning the center of the beer stein is a map of the coast of Normandy complete with drop-zones, beachfronts and landing points from the detailed information given on the left and right side of the beer stein. A pewter medallion is situated at the center of the wrap around decoration featuring part of the Normandy coast design along with the text, " D-Day June 6th 1944." Below the medallion on the body of the beer stein is a sketch of troops making their way through the water to the coast. Above the medallion are the words, "All Gave Some""Some Gave All." The ornamental pewter lid supports a combat helmet resting on the flag of the United States of America and the pewter thumblift features the US Eagle Seal.
