This is the Sixth Floor Museumís glassed-in display showing the area of the hidden rifle. I canít say how accurate the boxes are placed, and partially obscured in the frame. I will pay more attention to this display at my next chance.

Thank you James.... The window would have to be the window in the west wall .....  But  The boxes don't seem to be stacked at all like they were when the rifle was found by Weitzman and Boone.

I have to agree Walt, I can't make any sense of the boxes as they are positioned in the museum.
Where was the rifle hidden?

I believe that the dark area at the extreme right of the photo is the stairway wall  going down to the fifth floor....

There is a dark haired woman who is wearing a COVID mask facing east at the left side  ( east side) of the photo ....

I wonder why they didn't place the boxes as they were when Weitzman and Boone found the rifle ????

So you do now agree the still picture I posted was taken from the original Tom Alyea footage but you now believe the footage was tampered with to show the rifle in the upright position? Is that correct?

At the 0:22 point of the video, the pillar can be seen BEHIND Fritz.....

Of course it can be seen behind Fritz!
This is exactly where we would expect it to be seen if Studebaker's plat is correct.



Red "A" is roughly Alyea's position
Red F is roughly Fritz's position



Look at CE 515   (Page 39 of this thread)  ......And try to correlate this Studebaker plat with the spot where the arrow indicates the rifle was found.

Here are some consecutive frames from that animation:


















These frames show the fully loaded clip being pushed down and locked in place. There are six (count them) cartridges in the clip and they are all below the bottom of the receiver chamber and the level of the bottom of the bolt. This is also shown in blabbermouth's video. Simply place a seventh cartridge in the receiver chamber and slide the bolt forward. The seventh cartridge will be pushed into the firing chamber (in lieu of the top cartridge in the clip). This is also what Frazier testified.

The dented shell was dented when it was empty and used as the bottom shell in the clip.....

Thanks, James.... I can't make any sense of the display....    I don't believe it's  even close to what the area looked like at 1:00pm that day.
