This list shows, for each state, the highest single point along its entire land boundaries with all states. This list is not showing the highest point for each individual state-to-state boundary section, for example the HPs of the CA-OR boundary, the CA-NV boundary, the CA-AZ boundary, etc. It will only have the highest point on the entire CA boundary (which happens to be with NV).
Also note that the list includes the District of Columbia for completeness, but not Hawaii, which has no land borders. So the list only has 50 entries.
Four states have their highest boundary point on the border with Canada, but none with Mexico. And there are seven pairs of states that share a border high point--this is not surprising if a boundary passes over or near a high summit, and make the total number of actual peaks on the list only 43. Many of these point are near state high points and make for a semi-interesting "bonus peak".
Eighteenmile peak on the Idaho border is likely the most interesting and significant summit on this list that is not a state high point or major Alaskan expedition (St. Elias). Most of the others are zero-prominence "liners".
