Hi Adam,
There is a polished base and then the centre of the pontil mark is 3.5cm higher up.

In this photo, the weight is stood on the polished base and you can clearly see the pontil scar.
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

Much clearer.
I think this left the factory intact. Subsequently it has been damaged, rather badly and someone has ground out the damage and repolished, perhaps not as well as they had hoped.

In this pw the ring of bubbles should be level, so the base in the correct place and it should not have the phantom pontil scar, which is probably the remains of a rather serious concoidal fracture. (known colloquially as a fleabite)

Here is another photo, which I think is the clearest that I can get.

When the weight is stood on the polished base, the bubbles  are level. The signature also on the edge of the polished base.

I hate to say this Della, but Adam is right.  That's not a pontil mark, it's a 'bruise'!  I know because I have a weight with exactly the same sort of mark.  It happened when the cats knocked one paperweight off a shelf and it landed on top of another  :evil:  :cry:  :roll:

Oh, I am not too worried, it cost next to nothing and when it is on display it looks fabulous.
