I finished a boundary survey last week of a flat agricultural parcel in a sectionalized land area. I found a 1 1/4" x 3/4" rectangular iron rod?? at one of the corners. It was down 2.3' feet. I'd never seen anything like it before. It was kind of shiny, not rusted like iron. I believe it was set as per an old 1944 unrecorded survey plat. The plat called for a pipe. The rectangular rod fit the dimensions on the plat within a tenth or two. It didn't appear to be broken off or anything and I dug below it and on each side and didn't find anything else, so I think it's a monument of sorts. I'm not sure what to call it besides what I noted above. Anybody have an idea what this mon. could be? Sorry, don't have any pictures to post.
