I would have expected the original fingers to have had rounded ends with modern replacements pointed. However, while the right-hand finger has newish-looking lettering, the 'Shaftesbury' on the left does not look all that recent.

Anyway, the interesting feature is the original finial, giving location and six-digit grid reference.
