Hey guys, there used to be a large Reading Anthracite Metal sign in the st nick breaker in good condition, and would look nice in a museum. Then someone took/stole it a while back. I just noticed its popped up on ebay if you search anthracite coal or reading anthracite for 200. It might not be a bad Idea for some people to pitch in and have someone buy it to give to a historical society or mine tour like Ashland?

I sent the guy a nasty gram, a few hours later the auction was marked as brought and closed down. The guy said he got it at a scrap yard. BULL, seller lives in Pottsville PA, not too far off.

you guys do know there were hundreds of these signs made right? do you know for a fact its the one from st nick, does it match up to pics? i mean if the dude stole it id be all for giving it to him, but just cause that ones missing doesnt mean this one is it. they were on retail pockets all over the place. theres 2 in the scranton area that i know about......... just sayin'

I actually emailed the guy and told him to take it down because he stole it from the st. nick breaker, as soon as i did that the ebay auction was won, and it was over. Hmmmm.

Looks like the one on Ebay was definitely not the one in that photo (that photographer is almost as good as I am, but he needs to stop using photomatix for HDR Smile)


Here is the one on ebay:

Yea I hear that all the time from people who are scared and intimidated by technology. They just don't have the smarts to leverage it, too complicated for them. So they stick with film and crap point and shoot cameras and call them selves purists.
