    Too bad they're not...

    Too bad they're not all made of silver!!
    I had these two, 925 silver pulltabs custom made for me! I found a silversmith on Instagram who had alot of custom made items posted. So I contacted him, told him what I was after, 2 weeks later.... BAM!

    I was thinking the same thing. Cool gift to a detecting buddy or something like that. I know a guy who makes them.

    Just look up the name on the card in the picture.
