Leading Sole or Trailing Edge

Hey guys, 

So my question is one that seems simple, however I cannot find any literature on this. When my iron is sitting on the ground, should the leading edge be touching the ground or should the trailing edge be touching the ground? Regardless of lie angle and everything like that! In other words, at address, should the leading edge be more up and in the sky, or pointing more down and towards the ground?

Seeing as how it's at address, and not impact, it really doesn't matter too much. At impact, though, you'll want the leading edge a bit lower than the trailing edge, so many people set up with the handle forward a bit, lowering that leading edge at setup, too.

And I assume you’re not referring to heel/toe correct?

Nope! Nothing to do with heel toe, just how the sole of the club touches the ground at address

I’ve uploaded two pictures for reference. Club is a pitching wedge!
