Is This A Benchmark?

Hi! Welcome to Geocaching & Benchmarking.


The item you found in front of your house is not a benchmark, but it is a survey mark. Possibly a property corner or reference monument. 'PLS 8662' is the identification of the setting surveyor, a Mr. Kevin E. Mott of Las Vegas. 'PLS' stands for Professional Land Surveyor. '8662' is his license number which is registered with the Nevada State Board of Engineers and Land Surveyors. A list of Nevada Land Surveyors can be found on this roster. I'm unsure what the '59 44' or 'RM' indicate. Most likely additional information about the point or project the point was used for.
