Ok I have a question,
if the skull of an east baltid were to be dug up, would it be classified as caucasoid?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caucasoid

would the skull have a prominence of the cranium and forehead region,
a projection of the midfacial region, and a tear drop nasal opening?

The reason I ask this is because, some people wonder if east baltids are mongoloid, but if they have caucasoid skulls how could they be mongoloid?
East batlids do have noses that are slightly shorter, broader, and round edged then other caucasians, but the profile image reveals the prominence of the caucasian nasal spine and bridge, and from a distance east baltids appear thin-nosed. The east baltid nose may be round tipped, but the tip of the mongoloid nose has a much bigger surface area then the east baltid nose which comes to somewhat of a point. The mongoloid nose is also very flat, very short, and low rooted.

That are no good examples of real Eastbaltids though, Coon had a different definition of what Eastbaltid is and his "Neodanubians" come closer to what Eastbaltids really are though still no direct hit.

Eastbaltids are Baltids, Europids, influenced by Lappoid or even direct (minor-ancient) Mongoloid admixture.

Eastbaltids are still predominantely Europid and in the autochthonous European spectrum. Example of Eastbaltid after Lundman:
