Default The most expensive piece of coal ever?

Take a look at 250357227397 over at eBay.

It would be a nice addition to the $60,000.00 60 h.p. Case that has been featured on the same site numerous times.

Both items makes one wonder just what are some people thinking (or hoping).

..so who is going to be the first to bid?!?!

For nearly $5,000, there could at least be a carbon dating certificate or a diamond in there too!

If it works, more power to them.....however, I have an "original" shovel (20 yrs old!) to go along with that $60,000 CASE that needs boiler work, well maybe, but it has really nice bright paint!
