You're out searching for that elusive blue pulltab, you get that perfect pulltab tone and out of the ground pops one of these that someone has carelessly discarded!

I read somewhere that if you accumulate enough of them(I forget how many) that they actually have some scrap value!

It is annoying that people carelessly and inconsiderately drop jewelry in the very areas we are trying to clear of tabs and can slaw......downright rude! Makes for more work for all of us.

Don't let that discourage you David.....you WILL find those tabs you are so dilligently seeking. Endeavor to persevere.

You know, if you want to get a great collection of pulltabs without any pesky rings getting in the way I have some great spots I can show you!

You'd think by now someone would've developed a detector that will tune out the gold trash and still find the valuable pulltabs,but from what I've read you have to dig it all!

Yeah, that really grinds my gears!

I'll bet that thing was masking a perfectly good bottle cap too!

Strange thing is I tend to find gold trash in close proximity to trash cans. I guess they went for a hoop shot and got rimmed...
