    I have been holding on to this for far too long and now its time to let it go.

    I have 400 coal ore for sale located on Atlantic.

    I will take the first reasonable offer. Please no joke offers...

    Hi there,

    I do no know how you got that amount of ore.
    But I just wanted to say that that ore is not the original coal ore.

    Its not the christmas gift coal ore which had the tag "Coal Ore". It was the type you could mine before they had shadow iron. I will try to find some shadow iron to compare.

    Well,

    I have been a smith and a miner since the start of UO.
    And I did not receive any other ore than iron before all the new ore was introduced.

    This has been circulating in UO as coal ore for well over 8 years. If this is a scam its a damn good one! I have had this ore sitting in my bank for 6 years. Im not able to find any shadow iron ore to compare with but it looks very similar to the coal ingots I have that I know are real.

    There was a time when you were able to remove the ore type tag and along with leather too... I have piles of verite/valorite ore that just says ore.

    It is the same exploit used to revert items to their original names, example birds/feathers/lucky coin version of eye of newt/two toned versions of roll of string etc etc etc

    The one posted above definitely is not the original coal from xmas.

    LOTS of exploit items at the fest right now be cautious.

    Hi there,

    Christmas coal ore has a tag that says coal,not coal ore.Only coal.
    It is not possible to lockdown the coal ore.

    I have run around and checked vendors and auction.
    I found 2 vendors and one auction with ore for sale,none of them have correct tag,none of them advertise the ore as chrismas coal ore.
    But all of them has a selling note that says coal.
    The one at auction was lockdowned ofcourse.

    About the colour.
    I did only check one of the vendors and that one have the same colour as the coal tagged ore.

    Even if it isn't coal ore, it is a relic from the past. You could say it is "pre-patched" because modern shadow iron has the tag beneath it.

    Here are screen shots of the coal in the naughty bag.

    I mined up some shadow to see if they look different. The shadow iron ore is shown in the bottom row.

    can we compare the so called coal ore to the 2 above?? pretty sure the so called ore i bought does look like the darker coal rather than te shadow...alas i hate being ripped off...lol....oh well....tis uo

    i was under the impression all coal was turned to ...ore when the cooured metals were introduced...as viergedarkmoon suggests

    also i think the "coal" ore is hued shadow dancer black (tested with Pinco's EC interface) and shadow ingots are, well Shadow in the hue mod so the two are different

    and if the naughty bag "coal" is still tagged "coal" then there is another type

    one thing its not, is a kind of pre patch shadow different hues!

    Hi there Flash,

    yes you are right.UO love to reuse colours.

    Shadow dancer black is the same colour as coal tagged ore and ore without tag sold by Viergedarkmoon.

    And for all of you ore/ingot lovers I can say that shadow colour is the same as the darkest of the old black/blue npc ingots.

    the crazy amount of coal ingots that suddenly arrived some time ago came from a glitch,bug,exploit that let people make a lot of ore and then smelt it to coal ingots.
