I am preparing a slide show for a chapter meeting and am in need of some of the worst pin cushion pics you have.

If you have them please post them for me to use.

I already have that saved. I am looking for more, you might say a PLETHORA. And, yes I do know what a plethora is.

At another location one of these guys also politely told another surveyor in town that he wasnt accepting his cap by 0.13ft.

If they arent of record, and have no LS number, why would this be a pincushion? Only the angle iron has any meaning or value in that case.

Not every state files a survey for public records.

In New Jersey, only original calls hold when land is created. IE if I set a cap on a 100 x 100 foot lot in an existing subdivision, that cap represents my best effort to model the original intent of the location of that lot within the overall subdivision based on record control found.

If my field methods were poor or I don't recover enough original evidence, the cap will be set 'wrong.'

A next surveyor has several options when the corner is not a "record monument"

1. Finds the cap and reports the offsets to his calc'd property lines.

2. Finds the cap, reports the offsets and sets his own cap.

3. Does not find the cap because it is outside his search area and sets his cap.

In that case, shouldn't they remove the wrong one? It seems outrageous that you would simply leave multiple "correct" pins.
