Recovered concrete fragment with rough edges and chipping red paint; a small piece of rebar is sticking out.
Smaller pieces of concrete and debris from the World Trade Center were retained by workers at the scrapyards, where the architectural rubble from Ground Zero was flagged for recycling instead of forensic analysis.
