Iron Pot Embedded Inside Coal Lump: Out-of-place Artifacts (OOPArt)
In 1912, two employees who were shoveling coal in the Municipal Electric Plant in Thomas, Oklahoma, broke apart a larger chunk for the furnaces when, to the surprise of both men, an iron pot fell of the chunk. Several experts subsequently examined the iron pot and it was declared to be genuine. The imprint of the pot could also still be clearly seen in the broken chunks of coal that had encased it.
According to Robert O. Fay of the Oklahoma Geological Survey, the Wilburton mine coal in which the pot was found is about 312 million years old.
Here we have a notarized letter certifying the authenticity of the find. This pot is in the Creation Evidences Museum today, in Glen Rose, Texas.

Nov. 27 - 1948
While I was working in the Municipal Electric Plant in Thomas, Okla. in 1912, I came upon a solid chuck 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 Wilburton, Okahoma Mines.
