found it and took a pic, but allready have one. oh well. also found 2346e, but cant find it on geocaching.

I thought maybe this benchmark may have been destroyed when crews re-did this intersection. It is still there and found a new one that is not in the database 2346-F on the other side of 111th Ave and North of the A.T. & S.F. tracks.
