GT1327 - H1039

I wasn't particularly expecting to find GT1327 as it has a previous "no find" on it nearly 12 years earlier, but it was at a logical place in town to start my searching for the day.  I looked diligently, but could tell that the road had been widened substantially since the 1959 benchmark description.  It could still be there, under the pavement, but I seriously doubt it.
