I can say I saw the one's hanging in Ron Feldman's office and the one's in his partners goldfield museum and the one's in the the lost dutchmans museum. There all the same' so thier all fake. The one's on the bumber of the old car are different enough to clearly see all the others are fake that I've seen. So if one's gonna try to solve them you should try to reconstructe them.
Now that's interesting!
Another set of copy's hanging in Ron's office.Didn't know that Ron was that interested in the stones.
Makes one more set to add to the list.Also makes me wonder why those who know Ron Feldman,didn't know or didn't mention that fact when we were discussing copies/replicas.....secrets I guess.
All copies of an original are "fake",rather than genuine.Knowing what the changes were,and understanding who,when and why, is probably more important to a solution than any attempt to "reconstruct" the stones on the bumper.Any such attempt would likely only reflect the artist's own beliefs as to what should be there.Gollum and I have both suggested that,based on what the damaged photo shows,there may have been a second large hole in the original lower stone.That doesn't mean that it may not simply be a missing part along the tear line,but for someone making an altered copy,it might be where deleting the hole and moving the "M" a bit would leave the copier with a "secret". I just happen to like the idea because of the hole which corresponds to the "M" in my photo.The "S" in the word "Sonora" and the "S" elsewhere work for me just as well as another hole in the stone,which is why I included the hole in the photo of the "MEX".If the shallower scratchings are indeed "field notes",it gives me an idea of what was being explained at the time they were made,and what to look for next time I'm there.
