PHYSICAL/CONCRETE PROOF-EVIDENCE/MATERIAL EVIDENCE


Explanation:
I've checked numerous legal dictionaries but can't find anything precise. However, I believe (experience) that depending on the context, it could be either "proof" or "evidence"--YOU have to get a "feel" for the context. As to the word "material" you'd be better off using "evidence".
