    Hey keep the passion high

    Well look at it this way. Perhaps in 200 yrs. or so it WILL be considered a relic....
    What would our ancestors think of us if they knew we went 'gaga' over digging in their 'privies'...

    A Public Apology To Lennon631

    After a bit of a restless sleep last night (could not stop thinking about this tab), I contacted an esteemed expert today in said tabs and I do indeed stand corrected and want to apologize to Mr. Lennon! This is indeed a Fesca tab (Flavorious Frescus), BUT it's one of the incredibly rare OVERSTRIKES of a Coca-Cola tab (Coca Colarious I), which is what really threw me off -- having never seen one of these rarities before. I sincerely hope that Lennon631 has not retired from the forum as anyone who has achieved membership in the prestidious organization U.S.H.I.T. certainly has my utmost respect and admiration! Thank-you Lennon631 for your salient and sage insight

There ARE traces of plastic liner on the edges, which are INDEED classic to Fresca from 1967-79. I hereby retire myself from this forum to spare me from ANYmore foolish debates...

    You know....I think this awesome tab find will go down in T.H. history
    as the most amazingly well hit posts of all time. 101 posts at present,
    and still growing?
    The first thing you need to remember about running away is, it's the "from" that's important.  The "to" can take care of itself.

    I just sold my Explorer II and Etrac to put a down payment on the new machine Minelab is coming out with for 2011. The Tabbug 1000 discriminates out all those useless high conductive signals, and zones on on those low ferrous signals giving you the best chance of finding one of those rare treasures. Yes you will still have to dig a bunch of Nickels and peskey Gold Jewelry, but early field tests have said it's deadly on Tabs! I can't wait to get my hands on this Baby!!

    Re: Dreams do come true WaHoo!!

    Can you tell me what the reading was when your machine signaled the hit.......I don't want to set my discrimination too high, and
    tune these rarities out.....
    Can't find it if you're watching tv at home, your machine isn't on, and the head of your detector is pointed up!!
