Thanks for the link. I'd remove every Rock & go through it all with a fine tooth comb. Congrats. LEON.
It’s a balance because most people don’t want their walls destroyed and building them back isn’t easy. It’s amazing how good the old farmers were at building walls to last.
In New England there are miles and miles of walls all over the place so plenty of places to look.

I agree, at the same time I can't imagine how many stone walls will be dismantled because of this video. I know of one on my brothers property I want to probe already. Oh what a tangled web we weave buddy.

Sad to admit that I didn't know what PONTILLED meant, so for those in need of a definition, here it is.

pontil(Noun)

A punty; a metal rod used in the glassblowing process. After a glass vessel has been blown to approximate size and the bottom of the piece has been finalized, the rod, which is tipped with a wad of hot glass, is attached to the bottom of the vessel to hold it while the top is finalized. It often leaves an irregular or ring-shaped scar on the base when removed called the "pontil mark".

We ended up finding 6 Iron Pontilled Soda Waters piled on one another in the rock wall next to the dump where the pontils were found! Absolutely unbelievable! I can't wait to upload the video on to my YouTube channel!

Here is the one I dug today:
