GT1329 - G 1039

GT1329 was found in good condition and very stable.  About as good as it gets for being adjacent to farmland.  The nearby power pole and witness post help to protect this one.  Interestingly, another benchmark hunter found this mark in February 2010, but his pictures don't show the witness post. (View that image HERE.)
