Anyone here have any old pieces of Anthracite memorabilia? Its something I have been slowly getting more and more into collecting. This is my bigger stuff, I have a bunch of other stuff thats in binders that I need to photograph one day.

I just got this, a 1961 stamped (first one I have ever seen stamped) and hand painted as well, Blue Coal sign. This is by far the highlight of my collection. All for only a small fortune..

I have a similar collection, but don't have pictures at the moment. One of my favorite "pieces" is a huge matchbook from Old Company Lehigh...it says "hit a grand slam against old man winter".

I have Anthracite in my shin, knees and elbows. And I sort of remember how it got there from my motocross days. Does that count? :D

Waldo, I'm still waiting for a United Native American College Fund or even A Sitting Bull Day would cheer me up a little. No offense taken my friend :) Of course that idiot Columbus thinking he had landed in the West Indies & people referring to us as INDIANS is probably the only thing that, to date, DOES offend me. Geographically sad but true :clap: toothy
