A replica of the original held by The Creation Evidence Museum, this iron pot was found in 1912 when Frank Kennard broke open a large chunk of coal with a sledge hammer. Mr. Kennard details his find in an affidavit:
"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 mold 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 Sulphur Springs, Arkansas,
