The coal is clearly "mine run", or not crushed and graded. I saw bituminous
coal like this dumped in front of people's houses in southern Ohio in the 60s.
Just takes a couple of whacks with and axe or hammper to break it up.

Anthracite is something much more difficult when it comes to breaking lumps.
