I think I'd REALLY try and get some source data from the auctioneer, if you can. It would be great to find out where that came from.
I still don't know about the marking. I'm not sure the Indians even knew how to make six equally spaced points on a circle. IIRC, there IS an algorithm for a pentagon, but it isn't simple. Mine only shows very faintly - I think you can see it on my webpage - if not, I'm going to be deep into photography over the next month!
