First Benchmark

Recommended Posts

Well I found my first Benchmark today. Walking down the sidewalk, looked down to avoid a step and then did a double take as it was staring right at me. Now I need to figure out what to do with this. What do I post, how do I identify the mark, I have been over the Benchmark page looking for it to log. there are 2 caches right beside it (both at 5.5 miles from me, and the benchmark is right between them.) but when I checked the benchmark page I couldn't find it.

 

Its in Philadelphia at the corner of 3rd and arch streets if thats any help. Otherwise Any info you provide me is welcome.

 

heres a pic of it.

The Mark that you found at the NE corner of N. 3rd and Arch St. is a Tidal Mark JU0725 dated 1922. Quite a few others have found it as well and logged it on the website. You can read the "Me First" thread to get a good idea on how to log your finds. Philadelphia should be a great place to find many old and historic Marks. Good luck and welcome to Benchmarking!

Congratulations on your first benchmark ghosthunterlogan! You picked a good one – it is old.

 

Here is a link to the mark that topflitejr1 researched and identified that is your find: JU0725.

 

Happy Hunting!

 

Feel free to ask questions. There are a good bunch of people on this forum.

Picked? I didn't pick it. I literally stumbled on it. I was walking down the sidewalk, saw a step coming up and looked down so I wouldn't trip on it and that's how I found it. :D At least I had been through the forums before, and had seen this section so I knew what it was. If I hadn't glanced over the entire forum I still would have no idea. Fortunately thanks to the information here I recognized it.

 

:grin:

 

Adna big thanks to you for helping ID this one.
