§ 263. Statements by producers as to quality of anthracite
Every producer shall issue with each sale and delivery at, or railroad car or motor vehicle shipment of anthracite from his preparation plant to the operator of the motor vehicle, or to the retail dealer or wholesale dealer or person to whom delivery is made or to be made, a written or printed statement attesting that the anthracite so sold, delivered or shipped is “Standard Anthracite” or “Substandard Anthracite,” as the case may be. In the case of shipments by motor vehicles, such statement shall be placed on the weighmaster's certificate issued in conformity with the act, approved the nineteenth day of July, one thousand nine hundred thirty-five (Pamphlet Laws 1356), entitled “An act to regulate the sale and delivery of solid fuel, as herein defined; providing for appointment of licensed weighmasters; prescribing their powers and duties; authorizing substitute licensed weighmasters; imposing certain duties on the Department of Internal Affairs; and providing penalties,” and its amendments,1 and in all other cases shall be placed on the invoice to the purchaser or consignee.
In the case of anthracite hauled from a preparation plant directly to the consumer, it shall be the duty of the operator of the motor vehicle to deliver the producer's statement to the consumer simultaneously with the delivery of the anthracite which it attests. In all other cases, the producer's statement shall be delivered to the retail dealer or wholesale dealer or person to whom delivery or shipment of the anthracite is made.
It shall be unlawful for an operator of a motor vehicle to fail or neglect to deliver the producer's statement to the consumer, retail dealer, wholesale dealer, or person to whom delivery or shipment of the anthracite is made, or to deliver any substitute or forged statement: Provided, That where the original weighmaster's certificate is surrendered to municipal authorities in conformity with an ordinance relating to the sale of fuel within a municipality and a new weighmaster's certificate issued as provided in section 4 of this act2 containing the attestations required by this section, the operator of the motor vehicle may deliver the same in lieu of the original weighmaster's certificate.
