We reconsider a massive dual spin 2 field theory in four spacetime dimensions. We obtain the Lagrangian that describes the lowest order coupling of the field to the four-dimensional curl of its own energy-momentum tensor. We then find some static solutions for the dual field produced by other energy-momentum sources and we compare these to similar static solutions for non-dual “finite range” gravity. Finally, through use of a nonlinear field redefinition, we show the theory is the exact dual of the Ogievetsky-Polubarinov model for a massive spin 2 field.
