I found a CMC register in a copper tube noting elevation, date (1944), etc. on an obscure Gore 12er, that looked like it hadn't been touched since it was placed under a boulder on the summit. It even had the name of its relative location, which I had no idea it had been named at that time, yet there it was. It also had dirt filling one end. Kinda cool to find a piece of history in mountains so close to home.

I believe the American Alpine Club has a digital archive collection. They could add digital copies of the stored registers there.
