GT1325 - P 669 RESET

GT1325 is the type of mark that is difficult to miss due to its setting.  Prominently set, knee-high in the middle of a building wall, it stands out to a surveyor.  It's doubtful that the general public, and possibly even the building owners, pay it much attention though.  The building has been painted, and the mark with it, but someone has scraped a bit of paint of the mark in an effort to correctly identify it.

Found details for Benchmark: GT1325
GT1325 was found at 09:40, 29 November 2014.

The mark was found as described and in good condition. The building is no longer a bank, but is now the Adventist Health Community Care Center. The mark had been painted over when the building was painted, but a portion of the paint had previously been scraped off of the mark so the stamped designation can be read.

WGS84 coordinates found by 2 minute occupation with 6 strong satellites and 1 WAAS satellite.
