Certainly there's room for misunderstanding and confusion among the news agencies and what got reported in 1948, but the gist of what did come out sounds very little like this table brace had any relevance whatsoever in 1932, or at a time that aligned with Hauptmann's arrest. I think the real temptation here for anyone noting the hole spacing in the table brace is to jump to the conclusion it must have been used as a template to punch the ransom note holes, and then to assume added significance for anything else associated with it. Robert Zorn does this very well. And I'd be really interested if anyone could actually explain the physical process involved in using this table brace as a template for punching the ransom note holes. That question's gone unanswered for a lot of years since the "discovery."

            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
