By "look at" I meant query the data.  For example:

SELECT AsEWKT(the_geom) FROM my_points WHERE some_search_criteria;

Does the output show "SRID=102005;POINT(...)" and do the coordinates
look correct?  Do you have any reference points (points with known
coordinates in 102005 and in another SRID like 4326) that you can
use to verify that transforming to the new SRID works?
