Standing in front of the car, two at the back and two at the front.
Looking at it like a clock face, approximately 11 & 1 and 7 & 5, not 12 & 6 and 9 & 3.
The holes in the hood pins are orientated 12 & 6 though.
There are good examples in Marcus's article if you click on the "guide to original 1969 and 1970 hoods" section within this page here:

Where was your car built?   There was a arrangement of ho workers were suppose to install them but want to check to see if your plant followed that ;)

Thanks narrows down the search for examples

From a week or so before your car was built at San Jose





From possible a couple of days after your car was built at San Jose. Either very consistent or same worker





As a note I often will adjust the pins so that I can insert a nylon washer between the pin and the hood plate to eliminate the scratches when not showing or displaying.
