Sample Geotiff can be found at ftp://pamap.pasda.psu.edu/pamap_lidar/cycle1/DEM/South/2008/20000000/27002570PAS_dem.zip

The CRS should be EPSG:2272 in us-feet (or ESRI:102790), but QGIS (stable and master) assigns EPSG:3219, which has mostly the same parameters, but units in metres. This places the Geotiff somewhere in the sea.
