That top is fantastic as well as that example. I have only seen a crappy picture of the Bartunes open pontil. Great pictures thanks and hope you are able to get your hands back on it soon!!Bartunes from Mobile is the only one that has come up with an open pontil. I dug one 28 years ago, and now am in line to get it back.
Here are two iron pontiled examples, uncleaned and cleaned. The cleaned one never had any iron left in the pontil when it was dug. I always protect that area anyway when I tumble them.
The "uncleaned" one has actually been dremeled, and the inside is already polished, it just needs the outside cleaned and polished.
I also remove all the base wear when I tumble these sodas.
