The Mason-Dixon line was marked by stones set at every mile, and"crownstones" every five miles, using stone shipped from England.On the milestones the Maryland side says (M) tond Delaware andPennsylvania sides say (P). Crownstones include twocoats of weapons, of the Calvery family on the Maryland side and thePenn of the family on the Pennsylvania side. Today, while a number of theoriginal stones are missing or buried, many are still visible,resting on public land and protected by iron cages. See "realtedlink" under the image of a crownstone.
