Someone has been out collecting in this welcome warm spell. Nice score. She should prep out nicely.

Not sure, Ron. 

Prepping will tell the "tail" :P 

This one from 2015,  I'm pretty sure is complete, under the shale.

That 2015 one is simply cooler than cool!   so you find these yourself?

Yup! :) 

I have made 1/2 a dozen trips over the past 3 years to the place in NJ where these can be found.

The shale is very fragmented, and getting a large piece out is very difficult and time consuming.

But I agree,  cooler than cool. ;)
