Whenever the board has erroneously or improperly issued any certificate or patent
for any public lands whereby wrong or injustice has been or may be done, including
cases in which the state had no title to the lands, or its title has failed, the board
may, upon the written application of the purchaser, or the purchaser' s successor
in interest, revoke and annul the certificate or patent by its order, which, with
the application, shall be filed and recorded in the board's office. A certified copy of the board's order may be recorded in the office of the register
of deeds for the county where the lands lie, and upon the recording of the order,
the certificate or patent shall be void. When the board's order is so recorded there shall be paid out of the state treasury,
from the fund to which it has been credited, to the purchaser, or the purchaser's
successor in interest, the amounts in the manner and as provided in s. 24.34.
