Monument was found in very good condition. Set reference nails and removed the pipe which measured 35" from bottom of flange to top of cap. The spread of the flange was 5" wide with each flange being 3" wide. The pipe was 1 7/8" outside diameter. Bronze cap was 2.5" diameter and 1" tall. Found two small pieces of concrete. One was 3.5"x1.5" and the other was 1.5"x0.75". Replaced pipe as found from reference tie nails. Placed the concrete pieces on the north side of the pipe approx. 0.5' deep. Looked for the NE pit and found discolored soil as shown in the image.
