    I was also a bit confused when I seen the first ones but they definitely were sticking to the magnet. It may be that they were from mix oil cans for the two cycle boat engines.

    I was 17, and dating a 34 year old woman, who was a part-time manager of a motel. { What a great situation } One cold Winter day she told me about a ring at the bottom of their pool. They had been trying to scoop it out, but didn't have any luck. I stood beside the pool & could see it in the deep end . I had " Gold Fever " to get it, & split sale of it with her. About mid-night, I stripped down to my tighty-whities" & dove in . I could tell what it was about the time I reached for it. The ring from a " Beaver-tail " pull-tab !!!!

    I was detecting at a local Cincinnati park built in 1933. It is know for its mix of trash & treasures. I got a Gold/pulltab signal in the middle of soccer field. I dug it slowly. As I neared the target, a faint gleam of gold color appeared as the sun hit it. I jumped up in excitement, danced in a circle and then quickly stopped. I noticed a youth soccer game was starting and i was being stared at by passer-by's. I dropped back down to collect my due prize, only to find that the detecting gods have a sense of humor. It was a large, gold colored pull tab... I just had to laugh. I acted a fool over finding my arch enemy.

    Yeah, gold colored pull tabs should be illegal and a felony!

    I don't detect for the stuff I find, I detect for the stuff I haven't found.

    If I didn't find it I hope you did.

    What is your BEST Pulltab Story?

    I donít have a best pull tab story per se, but I sure do dig a lot of them! I posted this last year when I held a guessing contest for the number of tabs I had amongst my dug trash.

    Hereís a couple of pics of my accumulated trash.

    I've posted this story before but it applies here;

    Years ago I got a fishing buddy into detecting and told him to keep his eyes open for any good sites. He calls me and says he's gotten us written permission from a buddy whose the contractor on breaking the ground for a new subdivision and the site is on some old carnival grounds. We get there after work and are immediately finding old silver, Barber's and Mercs. Even pulled out a 14K gold ring along with the normal pulltabs.

    Suddenly, a police car shows up and two officers start giving us the third degree about trespassing. My buddy shows them the written permission and they ease up and ask what we were finding. I pull out a dozen pulltabs from my pouch and say, " This is all I'm finding"! The officers looked at each other like we were crazy and they leave. My buddy asks why I didn't show them the Gold and Silver and I said, "If I did that, they would be back here tomorrow with their own detectors. Better to send them on their way".
