I understand the logic here Michael, but I also have to believe that unless he lived in a cave, Gus Lesnevich would have understood categorically that Hauptmann was the writer of the Lindbergh Kidnapping ransom notes based upon the scope of his professional experience.

Again, I think the most practical approach would be to simply ask Gus what his personal conclusion was.

          It's still an unusual situation the way I see it Michael, because I can't imagine any QDE who hasn't been living under a rock to not understand that it was Hauptmann who wrote each and every ransom... more

            I'm just as perplexed about it as you are Joe. This may be an itch we will never get to scratch. Kennedy also included Gunter Haas' contrary handwriting opinion in his book. Haas was a graphologist.... more

      I would expect two experts would be considered "equals." However, if one examined "less" material then I think that would start to upset that balance and question the equality between the two. So who ... more
