Before BOREMAN, WINTER and CRAVEN, Circuit Judges.


Defendants, convicted of the interstate transportation of altered securities with knowledge of their alteration, 18 U.S.C.A. § 2314, appeal, questioning only the sufficiency of the evidence from which the jury could conclude beyond a reasonable doubt that they were guilty. Our examination of the record satisfies us that the evidence was ample to support the jury's finding.
