We would like to thank P&M Coal Company for their generous donation of this 73 cubic yard bucket from the "Princess" coal shovel to the city of Rich Hill, Missouri.

"Big Mouth" was moved here from Amoret, Missouri on June 21, 1993. This bucket could not have been moved without generous donations of time and labor of P&M Employees, P&E Erection Company and S-Corts Service.
