kayakbird Posted October 28, 2010 Share Posted October 28, 2010 The government program that used this style of disk was very short lived and I enjoy looking for them. MO1264 It appears that Albany County, Wyoming may have set as many as 266 (highest number seen in the designation column) and at least 37 got PID's. I have logged nine of these in the past two cold windy days. The one above is a NONPID but it was used as the AZ, along with the addition of RM 1 & 2, for the 1948 upgrade of SS #7 to second class horizontal order. SS # 50 MO0979 also was promoted and a quick scan through the datasheets indicated several others with the same treatment. Not all DS come right out and say 'U.S. COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY AND STATE SURVEY MARK' but that information may be found in another DS - good reason to never DESTROY a DS.
