But they do,
the example on Svend's page is a Buzzard Coulee, and in literature you read
it about Pultusk.

Well, the specialty here, is that a colour variation in the crust, if found
only on one side, can be used as criterion for orientation. Most of the
examples shown here, underline, that stones must have had at least a longer
phase of stable flight, because it is indicated by the lipping around the
edges of these sides. (Which identify the coloured sides as backsides).
