Pin cushion pics needed
Unfortunately I no longer have access to the picture, but the best picture I had was of two YPC's set on opposite sides of a fence corner post, representing the same corner, +/- .4 foot apart by the same surveyor. When I called and asked him about it, he said it was sometimes hard to keep track of the different surveyors he had working for him. In his defense he did good work in the majority of his work, and was embarrassed by it.
These little 2 or 3 tenth pincushions are cute but don’t even compare to the 80 foot pincushion (surveyor rejected a 90 year old 1/16th corner post) or the 900 foot pincushion (surveyor rejected original quarter section corner post in favor of fence line deemed better evidence and convinced superior court of righteousness of his point).
The worst variety involves a stone set in the 1800's for a section center corner and relied upon since then by the landowners and a (calculated--not set) coordinate determined to be the center that is used to determine the "true" corner of some smaller aliquot part. No journey to the area of the center corner was made because the surveyor "knew" there is only one true center and that is where he calculated it to be. The "coordinate" surveyor needs to be stripped of his license and made to pay damages to every landowner in that section who could be damaged by some future surveyor following this guys crap work.
