    USGS Marker Patches!

    They have 3 patches, for 25, 50, and 75 markers found.

    You have to limit yourself to 1/1/12 as a start date.

    We just sent in for Bronze and Silver. Without the date restriction, Gold would have been easy.

    Details here!

    I usually take pictures of them with my boot or foot in the picture.

    Some people go to great lengths to locate benchmarks that are present in USGS database but have been long "lost." More on this hobby on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benchm..._(geolocating)
