Kings ‘favorite’ Colt .45 family photos, a letter to his son from his Alcatraz cell and one of 174 bundles he shared with his wife in his luxurious Florida villa.
The collection was put up for sale by Witherels House in Sacramento on October 8.
Al Capone was one of the most feared underworld leaders during the 1920s, when the production or sale of alcohol was officially banned in the United States.
The godfather of a clothing gang in Chicago, nicknamed “Scarface” (“Scard”), terrorizes his rocket network and other violent methods, such as the “Valentine’s Day Massacre”, during which time he had seven members of a rival gang executed in 1929.
The gangster will never be prosecuted for his violent crimes, including the famous Elliott Ness – despite having police on his heels, but for tax evasion, he was sentenced to 11 years in prison and spent on the island – in the Alcatraz Penitentiary, San Francisco Bay area.
Whale House Witherels estimates Al Capone’s Fetish Colt could fetch $ 150,000, while his other pistol is estimated to be between $ 30,000 and $ 60,000.
The platinum and diamonds include a Patek Philippe pocket watch as well as other glittering jewelry monogrammed with Al Capone’s initials.
The current owners of these items are gangster granddaughters, Diane and Barbara Capone.
