Looks like the souvenir compressed coal dust items that used to be sold, seems like a reasonable price if someone collects that sort of thing. ;)

Coal breaker? I'm sure I'm showing my ignorance here, (not that it's the 1st time, and surely won't be the last), but is it's "intended" usage to actually "break" coal? Looks like it might make a nice belt buckle.
I got coal in my Christmas stocking. (Yey!)

Yes, but the handle is missing. :lol:

Just joking. It's what is embossed onto the piece that is the breaker.

Or the Blackstone River ... :woot: toothy
The laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are
neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. ...Such laws make things worse
for the assaulted and better for the assailants, they serve rather to
encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with
greater confidence than an armed man."

- Thomas Jefferson, quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria in "On
Crimes and Punishment."
