Very nice! I haven't spent much time on curbstrips, so it's a 2020 goal to dig a silver out of one. I tried for 30 minutes the other day at a curbstrip in an older part I town I pass on the way to work, and didn't expect anything at all. I ended up with a wheat and an early-mid 1900s great seal button.
