octagonal top plate missing :(

It was covered by a big vinyl X when I found it. I peeled it up to see the center rod, but the outer ring seemed to be missing.

This is an odd "disk". First of this type I've seen.

The marker is made from a 4 inch square flat piece of metal (copper?) about 1/8 inch thick. The four corners have been bent down to form eight equal length sides. A hole was punched or drilled in the center. The marker is stamped as described on the data sheet.

A metal cap, presumed to be crimped to a rod, was placed through the hole. The cap is flared at the top to prevent the removal of the marker. The cap has a center punch mark. The rod and cap is solid, and the marker is free to rotate around the cap.

Report submitted to the NGS.
