Perth Amboy Evening News- November 22, 1948

"Albert Weismann, furniture dealer in Watchung, told police today he sold the table new, back in 1940- eight years after the Lindbergh crime".

"There was no explanation of the disparity in dates".

Bergen Evening Record- November 22, 1948

"Bollard told police he bought the table in Plainfield 10 years ago".

If a person accepts the fact that two plus two equals four it clarifies the date disparity. There isn't any puzzle about it. You have two people in agreement concerning the date of the sale. The person who sold it and the person who bought it.

It is unbelievable that this table was "used" and then sold as "new". It would mean it sat in the furniture store, a used table, six or seven years before it was sold. Furniture dealers become hyper if goods sit around in their store six or seven months unsold.

        I think that without being able to prove the date we'll never truly know. Here's what I do know: I actually went to the Archives to see it. Most people who claim something about it never have. Next,... more

          Michael, I understand that the holes between the table brace and the ransom notes "line up" and if this alone convinces you the table brace was the original template for the ransom note holes, then... more

            No Joe, that "alone" isn't what convinces me. In fact, as I've stated above, I am not 100% convinced. The holes lining up is very powerful when seeing it for oneself. The other aspect is that Police... more
