"Wonder why it was sprayed? If for any other reason than what Philip mentioned. "
Back when many homes were heated with coal, coal was a consumer commodity. This was advertising.
They used claims like Cleaner Burning or Less Ash. Local home delivery coal yards could post 'We have Blue Diamond Coal"
and charge a premium price for it. Coal sold to a railroad or a power plant was only set by price. Household consumer coal
was different. Getting noticed, having a "Brand" meant getting more money.
