Long Description:
I recovered this U.S. Coast & Geodetic Survey NGS benchmark from 1943 in good condition. It's monumented on top of a boulder just west of Egert Rd and near an old wire fence. There is a stamping of F 350 on the disk in addition to the year. It is also found on a topography map listed as 'BM F 350 4294.3'. The NGS datasheet is adequate for disk recovery although Egert Rd is not mentioned in the NGS datasheet.
