Where is the mark on the polarizer supposed to be?

The lack of an accurate mark is a disservice to the user.

The first polarizer I bought was in 1965 and it had more than just a mark; it was an actual, physical handle about a half-inch long sticking out to the side from the rotating rim. It was accurate. It was ALWAYS accurate. A couple I bought in the 60s and 70s had a mark instead; I missed the handle but at least the mark was accurate. Just point it toward the sun for maximum effect, no time-consuming spinning to figure out where maximum effect was.

The lack of an accurate mark is a disservice to the user.

I've often thought of gluing my own marker on but I guess the reason I haven't is I don't do near the outdoor shooting I once did.
