The application of formal inference procedures, such as Bayes Theorem, requires that a judgment is made, by which the evidential meaning of physical observations is stated within the context of a formal model. Uncertain evidence is defined as the class of observations for which this statement cannot take place in certain terms. It is a significant class of evidence, since it cannot be treated using Bayes Theorem in its conventional form [G. Shafer, A Math-
