I think it would be safe to just assume that something that's been buried the last sixty-five years doesn't pose much of a threat.

Of course, it would also be awesome if they dug it up and there was some really old dude sitting inside, with his oxygen tank. "Heheeeh! Gotcha, ya damn frogs! *b-thoom!*"
It is actually a fairly common occurence to find live rounds when doing road, water, and sewer work, among other constructions. On a somewhat frequent basis, workers in certain countries (German road workers especially) get killed when doing work because they hit a live round.
