I read your recent pipe/pin post with great amusement as I encountered the same thing on a recent boundary survey. We completed a 30 acre boundary and topographic survey which was quite screwed up to be so straight forward. Bounded by I-75 on the south and platted subdivisions on the west, north and east. These subdivisions were created between the mid-1960's and early 1970's.
The picture I posted was along my west line. The subdivision plat called for "iron pins set at all property corners". We found numerous 3/4" pipes with crimped tops and I made the call that these were the original monuments set. The ones we recovered formed a straight line well within the tolerances of the day. We recovered a few 1/2" rebars which also fell nicely in line with where I determined the line to be.
I found two of these axles (which another surveyor had called out as subdivision lot corners on one lot he surveyed). Both had crimped top pipes buried near these axles.
It is AMAZING that they called these axles to be the corners when the true corners were so easy to find.
Just another day retracing careless, sloppy and unprofessional work.
