New Type: the Berkeley Notched Bulbhead!
A new type fell into our mailbox today! Sent by Paolo Sanchez and found a University of California Berkeley campus.
Paolo included a long letter in his shipment, explaining how Berkley is a university with roots deep in the 19th century and points out its involvement in the development of nuclear physics and the Free Speech Movement of the 1960s. The pull tab in this picture was found near Strawberry Creek, which runs through the campus site. Just great when pull tab archaeologists’ take so much time to explain the context of their find!
All in all a real treat! Paolo also took the liberty to suggest a name, the ‘Berkeley Notched Bulbhead’! This is quite a technical name, because the notches, a feature of the tabs, are indeed quite prominent on this type. This suggests Paolo really took a look at how we at the ICPTA have classified other tabs.
We love it! The ‘Berkeley Notched Bulbhead’ it will be!!
