Tagging Monuments

The thread below about recordation of surveys brought up the point of tagging your monuments with your LS number. It's probably been brought up before, so sorry if it has.

I guess being born in a bubble makes me naive on the tagging corner concept. As they saying goes .... don't assume anything, which I pretty much had.

I have 5/8" rebar plastic caps for normal use. We've all seen them.

Also 1 1/2" aluminum caps (for 5/8" rebar) that I stamp. These are for c/l monuments in concrete collar.

2" brass washers already stamped I use for big PK's or tricky places

1/2" brass washers already stamped I use in rock drill holes with small PK or cut nail. Never a problem. Also use for tagging older found monuments I accept that have no tag. I just attach it with twisted wire around it.

I don't think tagging is a PLSS vs M&B issue, as much as it is about the level of professionalism we take with our surveys.

I am also curious about the statute of limitations in non-tagging states, and how they prove anything?
