Error of Locator to pinpoint exact coordinate location.

I'm testing out the placement accuracy of location. I pinpoint an exact location (say the corner of a building).  I copy the exact coordinates (lat long or UTM) into the Locator box.  The dropped pin can be from 170 feet to 700 feet from it's correct location.  Is this a problem with the map scale or Spatial resolution of the map?  I'm volunteering for a natural history museum in the paleontology department.  Knowing the exact location of fossil location for mitigation purposes is critical.  Thank you for any assistance.
