Brass Bell and Steel Pot in Coal




Many objects have been found embedded in Coal which is about 300 Million Years Old.

Sulphur Springs, Arkansas - Nov. 27, 1948

While I was working in the Municipal Electric Plant in Thomas, Okla in 1912, I came upon a solid chunk of coal which was too large to use. I broke it with a sledge hammer. This iron pot fell from the center, leaving the impression, or mould of the pot in a piece of the coal. Jim Stull (an employee of the company) witnessed the breaking of the coal, and saw the pot fall out. I traced the source of the coal, and found that it came from the Wilburton, Oklahoma Mines.

In 1944 Newton Anderson claimed to have found this bell inside a lump of coal that was mined near his house in West Virginia. When Newton dropped the lump it broke, revealing a bell encased inside. What is a brass bell with an iron clapper doing in coal that is supposed to be hundreds of millions of years old? According to Norm Scharbough's book Ammunition (which includes a compilation of many such "coal anecdotes") the bell was extensively analyzed at the University of Oklahoma and it was found to contain an unusual mixture of metals, different from any modern usage. Photo and text from Genesis Park.

"I mention this because it is fairly common to find puddles consisting of slurry made up of whatever material was being mined around mines. If the cup, which appears to be cast iron (and similar to pots used to contain molten metal used by tinsmiths, people casting bullets and the like), were dropped into such a puddle the sediment will often consolidate around it."

This is what they say about the London Artifact - the Hammer in Stone - that it was actually embedded in a concretion however, Dr. Baugh comments on that concerning the hammer and thus it should be an easy matter to determine, one way or another, whether or not it was a concretion. This, of course, can not be verified for the tea kettle in coal since the original chunk of coal is, apparently, no longer in evidence, however, it would serve to show that, it certainly is possible that it was not a concretion either.

Further, I suspect that testing the metal would also serve to show that it is not a turn of the 20th century artifact but is Antediluvian. And, unfortunately, for whatever the reason, no one seems to test the artifacts to determine if they are genuine or not, just ignore statements by those who state that they are who have actually done some testing.
