Unfortunately I didn't yank the photo off the post. I checked LoM to see some of the older pontil threads and it looks like the photo is gone from there as well. The comparitive shots you had of the different types all in one image was a great reference, I wish I had archived it now.

Thanks guys...I'm trying to get some more photo's. My Dad is having a bad day so it may take me a while, please don't give up on me, I so appreciate everything you tell me. I have a few that have what I think are "pointed" pontils but I honestly don't know. 2 I think are unusual marbles to say the least....I'll do my very best to get some good pics on here ASAP

Thanks,

Patty

I gather this compilation pic is an assortment of typical seams and nines and such to be looked for on slags.

brad, did you have a different pic in mind to illustrate pontils?

Thanks! that's cool, even if it's not pontils!

I'm thinking pontils aren't so much of a slag issue. Is that right?

No, that's not right, is it. Transitionals can be slags, can't they. and we need to recognize pontils there?

Yes, its similar in style to the slag identification photo but instead shows the different types of pontils marbles can have.

Edit: Slag-like transitionals can have all pontil types except I believe bullet mold.
