    I sent the key via PM. The first section of the text should have 3 columns with tabs between them as the tabs got replaced with a single space. If you cut and paste the text into a word document you can restore the tabs and it should make the key section easy to read.

    Let me what you see.

    I urge you to post your "key" to to forum. I don't like to work in "PM" mode. It tends to degrade over time into pettyness.

    If you post it to the forum, I'm sure everyone, me included, would have comments for you.

    I agree - I'd like to take a look at it too.

    Sue,

    Check your PM. Under the key heading the first column is the key for the sculpture as dots and dash. The second column is the alaphet as morse code using the K4 key. The third column is the numbers as morse code using the K4 key. Sorry for the tab key. Once you align these three columns then you can go through the steps. What can you see?

    Thanks Treefinder. I'll have to pull out all my Kryptos stuff again.

    If you are treating this as morse, how did you decide where the breaks are?

    There are no breaks. Remember What can you see? from K3.

    The morse is a palmipsest - a "simple past" anagram. There are many messages here. It also permits the text to be interpretative - very artistic. Due to clues from ATT I got the key word tiaga. I was working out clues looking for TOME GEMZ, but once I got HOOK TEAM OP i started to see more. I would google a little and then return to the morse and then read some more. once i got QOM it all fell into place. I was an emotional wreck once I really saw it for what it was. I was no longer looking for ATT mates to rescue - I had discovered real mates and a real rescue.

    It is also amazing that a kryptos correction has occurred during ATT, plus the agency has released a "treasure trove" of documents called the family jewels.

    I don't believe the real K4 solution will be so vague or interpretive. K1-3 were very deliberate, exact, and reproduceable. The kind of thing you would expect a spy to be able to use, realistically.

    Do not look at it as a solution, but are the steps reproducable to generate the same message. I am just trying to get the method repeated so at least some one else besides me can at least get to the same morse text.

    How about posting your solve? I deleted everything in my PM inbox.
