Looks like the souvenir compressed coal dust items that used to be sold, seems like a reasonable price if someone collects that sort of thing. ;)

Coal breaker? I'm sure I'm showing my ignorance here, (not that it's the 1st time, and surely won't be the last), but is it's "intended" usage to actually "break" coal? Looks like it might make a nice belt buckle.

Yes, but the handle is missing. :lol:








Just joking. It's what is embossed onto the piece that is the breaker.
