Title:
Government's Lowell test bullets
Description:
Photographs show the single short deep wide cut on a land upon the mortal bullet. The 12 test bullets fired thru Sacco's pistol show two cuts upon a different land. During trial prosecution called to the jury's attention to oune cut on the mortal and one cut only on the test bullets - omitting to call to their attention the second cut and its significance of innocence. The arrows point to the cuts. Also see MS 2030 Box 65 F38 (c-d).
