GT1330 - K 1039

GT1330 was found in bad shape.  It would be classified as damaged.  The mark and its setting look to be intact, but the setting is leaning, somewhere in the neighborhood of 30° out of plumb.  The setting is immediately against a relatively new power pole.  The setting was most likely upset when the pole was replaced.  The mark is no longer suitable for survey use.
