Cast Iron made Cup was found in 1912 in Oklahoma in a piece of coal with an estimated age of more than 312 million years.
In 1912 an electric company employee in Arkansas broke open a large lump of coal, revealing a man-made iron pot. The original coal bed was reportedly mid Pennsylvanian age about 300 million years old by conventional geology.
The following text is a letter from Frank Kennard, the man who found an iron pot embedded in a large lump of coal. The Creation Evidence Museum has a copy of this letter on file.
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.

Sworn to before me, in Sulphru [sic] Springs, Arkansas, this 27th day of November, 1948.
Jullia L. Eldred N.P. My commission expires May 21, 1951 – Benton Co.
The coal from the Wilburton Coal Mines is assigned an evolutionary date of Mid Pennsylvanian (295 million years.)
