Long Description:
This is an enigma in that this Benchmark is marked on the Sand Gap, Ark. 7 1/2 minute 1980 USGS Topographic map as BM 1902 at an elevation of 1902 feet. The elevation stamped on the Benchmark is 1603 feet.

I located this Benchmark by using Topozone coordinates to get close. The aqua tinted patina on the disk is very pronounced.
