To amy35 and All:
Wow, this is a theory I had never heard of before, which doesn't mean that one should accept or reject it at first glance. But in order for the ransom package to have contained $30,000 of unrecorded serial number bills, it would seem as if someone in a high position at J. P. Morgan, by replacing the recorded serial number bills with the unrecorded ones, would have known that he'd be playing a trick on the Treasury Dept. agents. Normally, that would not be a wise game to play. So what may have been the motivation for the switcheroo? Did Lindbergh order the J.P. Morgan people to do it, perhaps trying to protect (partially) the ransom receiver(s) from legal repercussions? Were the T-men themselves corrupt enough to let such a switch happen? What would the J.P. Morgan people have to gain from it?
This is just a theory I have been working on. Thanks for asking those questions.
And why do this exactly?
