Does anyone know where this mine is? Anything about this miner? Or, is this really "Prunes"?

I have seen this post card for sale on eBay. I can't find any references to its authenticity beyond the claims of the seller. If the mine is the Hock Hocking then its possibly Prunes but the miner is probably not Rupe/Rube. The miner looks a little like Ed Snell from pictures I have seen. It was last being sold out of PA for $100. I have done some research on Prunes because of his stated age on the monument intrigued me. The most detailed history of Prunes I have found was in a 1974 article in True West magazine. Eric S. knows the story.

Yep, this is an eBay postcard. But, I'm too cheap to buy it.
