I don't have one. After I looked at it I remember commenting to Mark that the earlier pictures were better. I think this piece more than anything else was the most handled over the years and its led to it being degraded. Some of the evidence even got wet. Not sure if that happened here but something happened.

I think there's value in someone going to the Archives with the specific forensic tools necessary to try to raise "Sedgwick" and possibly get the other letters back to their original forms so that it can all be properly examined. Maybe that's not possible but I suspect it could be done. Of course I'm sure that would lead to (e.g Ramsey Case) half of the "experts" saying Hauptmann wrote it and the other saying he didn't but I'm selfish and would like to see it in the best possible light for myself.

          That's the NJSP evidence photo. The earliest was made in NY but this is still better than what currently exists as written on the actual trim now. I remember how I could hardly see "Decatur" except... more

            What I find most interesting is the timing of that "k" in the closet in relation to the period involving the writing of the ransom notes. It's a trademark of the ransom notes, and perhaps in the mind ... more

              I cannot say about the hesitation in "Sedgwick" other than to agree (!!!) I don't see it in either that strange "S" or the "k." I do see it in the Phone Numbers but NOT in the address. I guess we... more
