I think that this is a case of double data sheets for the same mark.

As I read it, the USGS found this existing mark

JO0306'AT LUND, IRON COUNTY, ON THE UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD, ABOUT 243 FEET
JO0306'NORTHEAST OF THE OPERATORS OFFICE IN THE STATION, ABOUT 95 FEET
JO0306'NORTHWEST OF THE CENTER LINE OF THE MAIN TRACK, IN THE SOUTHWEST ANGLE

and maybe even did the elevation over-stamping (there is a 5092 under the 5081.532) and encased it in concrete without documentation , but did not plant it

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were established by classical geodetic methods and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in November 1997.
  • The NAVD 88 height was computed by applying the VERTCON shift value to the NGVD 29 height (displayed under SUPERSEDED SURVEY CONTROL.) The vertical order pertains to the superseded datum.
  • The Laplace correction was computed from DEFLEC99 derived deflections.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
