i would put money on it that they are not delivering premium coal from where it is found to be the best
and hardest in our hometown of tamaqua,

I think the title of this thread is a little misleading. The words "Very Cheap" tend to bring in folks looking for the coal dealer with the "lowest bid". After reading a few of the most recent pages of this thread, it seems that you (butchthecoalman) aren't claiming to have the lowest price, but rather a better than average product. That's fine, but perhaps if you titled your ad as "Premium coal for a reasonable price" people wouldn't be surprised if your quoted price is higher than the cheapest guy in their area

I haven't burned any of your coal, so I can't comment on the performance. I have certainly observed differences in btu & ash content in the different coal sources I have used, so I think it is fair to say that the cost to buy, and the cost to use can be different. Lastly, the word "guarantee" is a strong word, and the words "best" & "better" are subjective. If you are going to market your coal as the best someone can buy, you better get some fresh specifications posted and deliver a product that is as-claimed.
