    I believe the "truth" is in the history, you just have to know where to listen.

    I was working at an old coal camp in Perry county. Found this old miner's check tag. Once his car was loaded, the miner placed his "check" on it -- a small brass check with his number -- which allowed the checkweighman at the tipple to credit him with the tonnage loaded for the day.


    The camp was from the First Creek Coal Company 1916-1918

    Cool, how long ago was that swiftfan? I saw the "diggers" on Natgeo were over that way detecting some Hatfield/Mccoy territory. Did you get a chance to meet them?
