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, there was a light source placed under the hole with the holes of the notes laid over top. They lined up. Without doing this is wasn't as impressive once it was. I remember walking away believing it was, however, over the years and considering it over and over I would be very cautious to say a rock solid 100% without verifying the date of the table itself. We've all tried over the years and there are similar tables both within the range and outside of the range.

Without the label we will never know and its not on the piece. It could be one day a crate gets opened and we find out. But until that day comes none of us will ever know for sure.

So we'll have those say furniture dealers don't sell anything but brand new tables ever, or that newspaper articles are wrong in some places but not here even though Mark gave examples where they were. So they will imply Mark doesn't know what he's talking about. Guess that means the writing is in purple ink?

If we don't know something what is wrong with simply saying that? So without knowing there are a wide range of options to consider. And at this point they are all worthy of thought.

As far as ideas as to 'how' I remember having several when I saw it but I'd need to see it again before I floated them out there.

        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
