      & inserts the full if still meager nutshell here below
      but with the following questions inserted for anyone who can

      first & most importantly
      why is the base of the russian flagpost square while all 3 other marker bases are round

      & could this be corrected some night with say a hammer & chisel

      & 2nd
      can anyone confirm the present byltlv point was indeed a soviet tristate point as early as 1940
      or was there some interrepublican nibbling around the edges in later soviet times that could have moved the location

      also was this an administrative tripoint pre1940 too

      & finally what did the tripoint use to look like pre1990

      it was after all 1 of only 9 soviet tristate points
      practically all of which were remote & or wet retards

      so it is of some intrinsic interest 
      & perhaps 2nd only to the great byruua
