Found an untouched pontil era city dump with my digging buddy! Didn't pull any pontils, but I've just started! We both got awesome stuff!

Here are my finds:

some of those Pontils look like puffs which have really thin glass like a light bulb. be careful not to break them in your future digs. Good Luck. LEON.

Understood, half the time I've been digging with my hands, becuase I am so scared that I might put a rake through a whole one. None were intact as far as I know, but there should be a whole one somewhere!
