to me Kev in the photo you can see a pontil mark, do you mean the whole base has been ground and polished or just the pontil on IEA weights, i've never seen one of these in the flesh
cheers Ray

For confirmation, here's three photo examples of what I meant to say ...

The OrangeYellow weight shows a small "crunchy" style scar in an obvious indentation
The White one shows a typical small "nodule" style scar in shallow indent
The Labelled one is an IEA on Blue Ground weight which just about shows the ridges from a "nodule" style scar under the label but in an indent.

The ebay one (relisted item initially from the Bourne End sale) is much the same as my example in the way the label is set over the indented pontil scar, except that the eBay one has a complete label.

This is has come up on ebay. It is one of the strange code sequence pieces from the Bourne End sale. Not only is the code sequence wrong the colour code is on the label (55) the correct colour code I believe should be 96.

Mod: Gary's eBay link above goes to a list of various Monart items. The vase referred to is:

You might like to know that JJ was spotted in Perth last week and is "downsizing".  Be aware.

This is a photo I took at Perth library. It was among the Moncrieff archives and it shows that Moncrieff's did have a London office. There was no date on the headed note paper.
