Yelp he said it was,I looked in,it's full of Boxes of stuff and Lawn Furniture.

Did you know he was putting his stuff in it?

A property line adjustment cost me about $2000 in a case where I needed some of their property, and they were willing to swap part of theirs.

Don't make an issue out of it, things can get ugly and make BEING HOME very miserable. I have seen neighbors pour antifreeze in an area that ran onto some else's property, then call the Environmental police. + midnight Chainsaw, fireworks, motorcycles, all weekend trap shooting parties... Oh, and the UP-WIND chicken and pig pens, and burn barrels...

I'm so grateful for my GOOD neighbors and aim to keep the peace.

Have you spoken to your neighbor since you found the pins? Or did the lawyer call him? If so, what was he told by the lawyer?
Now that he's realized that it was his "mistake", maybe he's embarrassed or reluctant to admit it. If you don't want the stuff or the shed, you could offer to help him move the stuff, in a neighborly way.
I so agree with StealthRabbit. You want to have a good relationship with your neighbors. Even if it means you go out of your way a little. But, that doesn't mean you just give him the land and forget about it! Give him your help, instead.
Good luck.

The Lawyer told him the Shed and Contents were mine.

To make matters more interesting he is Head of Home Land Security in our county and he is one to let his power go to his head.

.....which is why it might be difficult for him to admit he was wrong.
I still think it would be easier for you, in the long run, to be as neighborly as possible.
End goal.....move the shed and not gain an enemy in the process.

Well there is no moving this Shed because of size and it's on a hill side.Plus I can't have his Lagoon,which is shared by 3 other places,draining on my property,not counting the fact that some of said Lagoon is on my property.

I just can't see any way of not making a enemy with out giving up thousands of dollars and me being Happy.Actually I'm making 5 families enimies because of this.

Him and several others around me messed up by not getting problems taken care of on their properties taken care of when they bought,which is what I'm trying to do (take care of problems) before it gets years down the road.

That's odd... but you could still sell it to the neighbor for $1.
That sh/would address the legal principles involved.

Meanwhile... do something to better mark those pins.
Maybe plant some specimen trees or erect some tall poles with bat boxes.
