“ Workers familiar with finger-print minutiae all affirm that there are no two duplicate prints of different fingers. They recognize many qualities other than the mere occurrences of details. The minutiae, like total patterns, have individuality. The interruption between two ridge ends may be short or long, the ridges may or may not deviate in direction as they terminate; bifurcations exhibit varying spreads, and many similar individual distinctions of minutiae occur.
“ A finger print is too complex a structure and its numerous details, definite as they are, are as arbitrary in their occurrence and arrangement as are the pebbles on the beach, no square foot of which could ever be duplicated by any other. It is always so with natural objects; the details are so numberless, and so independent of the rest, that there are no duplicates.”
