A report on the condition of this survey mark has been submitted to NGS, along with the following recovery note:

The station and reference mark 2 were not found. Reference mark 1 was found in poor condition, and the azimuth mark was found in good condition.

The stone wall into which the station mark was set has been repaired or rebuilt and there is no evidence of the disk. Reference mark 2 was searched for using the description and measurements from the box score, but it could not be found.

Reference mark 1 was found on a stone culvert as described. It is secure in its setting but the arrow on the disk, which should be pointing easterly toward the station mark, actually points to the south. This is potentially confusing and may indicate that the culvert was disturbed or rebuilt at some point.

The azimuth mark was found in good condition at the Range View overlook, as described.

Handheld GPS coordinates for RM 1 are 38 45 23.2(N) 078 15 07.5(W).

Handheld GPS coordinates for RM 2 are 38 45 23.5(N) 078 15 07.2(W).

Handheld GPS coordinates for the azimuth mark are 38 45 51.6(N) 078 13 38.3(W).
