Found while doing a very nearby cache. We didn't find the cache, but we found the benchmark...

The disk is still in good condition. Grass and earth were covering the disk.

Expanding my caching horizions andd this is My first benchmark. The location directions were right on and found with no trouble. I know they will not all be this easy.

This benchmark was found as described except that the stamping indicates “Reset 1936” instead of “Reset 1935”. The disk is in good condition, and the description led directly to the site.
