Of course I know what pen pressure is. The downward force of the writing instrument. Big deal. I also know that blathering about pen pressure is a fortress of handwriting charlatans.

Oehler mentions "pressure of the pen." It should be "pressure of the pencil." The trim board writing was written with a pencil. Did you read what I wrote?

The trim board is a rough wood surface with a heavy coat of paint on it. The brush strokes have created troughs and ridges on the surface of the trim board. Would any rational person expect the pencil strokes to be uniform on such a surface? No,they would not.

When Hauptmann wrote the address and telephone number on the trim board he was in a standing or semi-crouched position. He was not in a normal writing position as when you are sitting at a desk and writing. This has an effect on the written product.

What are the best standards of comparison to be used in an analysis, comparison, and evaluation of the 2974 and the 3-7154 telephone number? Hauptmann's account books. There are hundreds of 1's, 2's, 3's, 4's, 5's, 7's, and 9's to use for an examination. They are Hauptmann's normal course-of-business writings. You can bet your life that Edward Oehler never saw them or used them when he wrote his goof-ball article.

I know this for sure. I would put my handwriting charts up against Oehler's charts and let a judge or jury decide who is correct any day of the week.

    "Pen Pressure" is a term. I thought you would know that. Those numbers match? Congratulations on your "opinion." Everything he wrote matches up with what I've seen while looking at the actual trim.... more

        I sure did read it. You made quite a few assumptions. He did not know what Paynter admitted to yet concluded it was the phone number that was forged. How does something like that happen? Anyway I'll... more

          So, Edward Oehler did not know Henry Paynter admitted to forging the telephone number, yet Oehler concluded the phone number was forged. This is a non sequitar isn't it? Oehler claiming the phone... more

      It also demonstrates at the address and phone number were written at different times. Pretty important observation knowing that Paynter wasn't admitting to the entire thing - and just that phone... more

        This does not demonstrate (Oehler) that the address and phone number were written at different times. There is no evidence present that indicates or shows the time of writing. The phone number could... more
