I have found survey pegs with a metal detector and a dowser.  I have seen
two types.  One is a piece of rebar with a brass top.  Very easy to find
with a metal detector.  One is a piece of rebar with a plastic top.  Easy to
find, but doesn't give out the signal of brass.  Set your metal detector/s
discriminator to a low setting.  Get you some orange soccer cones, or just
rocks to make squares to search so you don't go over the same area over and
over.  The brass ones really put out a signal.

When these are pounded in the ground, the rod goes first.  Then the cap.  If
one has been messed with, it is usually obvious, and if a brass one has been
rehammered, the marks will show.  Ditto with plastic.
I've never pulled one, so don't know how long they are.  The rod is usually
3/4" to 1" dia.

Let us know how it shakes out.
