I also have stoker,anthracite,Bitumious, met, Black Smith, 2x0 coals.
It should be noted there is people here paying less than $100 per ton for soft coal, you're not going to get anthracite for $100 ton even if you ordered a train car full of it.

Soft coal from your area and anthracite from Northeastern Pennsylvania are two completely different animals.

Can Black Smithing Coal $1.00lb really be that much? That would be $2000.00 a ton. :shock: :?:

In my experience blacksmiths are a pain in the ass to deal with and I don't blame him for charging $1.00/lb :|

(blacksmith) "That coal you gave me, I don't like it. It stinks up my shop, I like propane, but I want to get better with coal." (me) What do you mean it stinks up your shop? bituminous coal does have an odor and will make some smoke when burned in a heap like blacksmiths do, are you saying that it smokes more than other coal you've used, why isn't it going out your draft hood etc.? "No, it's not any worse than other coal, I just don't have much ventilation. Can I return this coal, drop this coal off in your driveway or something and play with one of the other varieties you have, mabey you could come pick it up?" No, I don't want a pile of coal in my driveway, keep what you have, no coal is going to fix a lack of ventilation, sorry.... :roll:

most of these guys are a pain in the ass, with few exceptions.

The industy for the most part has termed " blacksmith coal" and Live steam coal" as coal from the Pocohantas Vein #3. This is high quality Bit coal. It has mostly been mined out but there is still some limited activity going on.

However, always check with the supplier as to what they term blacksmith coal.

If it is a $1 per lb including shipping that is about right. Without shipping I see it go for $15 to $20 per 50 lb bag. Always sold in small quantites so it is a PITA to deal with.

Here is a supplier near Berlin that sells it by the box full:

The best blacksmith coals are those with a high coke button and less than 30% vols. under 20 is ideal. Steamup is right, Blacksmiths do tend to have an idea of poco #3 for blacksmith coal, but most wouldn't know what it was if they tried it. Sewell and other high quality coals are also highly prized such as "KY forge" - a high quality high BTU (yet high vol) low coke button coal. Many would, and many also prefer other high btu, low/mid vol bituminous coals with a high FSI. A few even like high vol and are good enough to like whatever is cheapest.

I live in Lost Creek, WV and am looking for 5 tons of heating coal. Anyone know of a person that has any and can deliver? I can get it by the pickup truck load if necessary.

Thanks,
Tony

Welcome to the forum AFG. Are you looking for Bituminous or Anthracite coal? If you are needing Bituminous, maybe one of these can offer information as to coal haulers in your area.

Give Joe Sheets a call at 3J Enterprises: 304-864-3638. He's in Newburg, about 40 miles from Lost Creek. Has lots of bagged anthracite and usually has some bit coal as well.
