Capone, Al (1899 – 1947)
A remarkable partly-printed document signed twice, ‘Alphonse Capone’, November 18th 1926.
An interest note for ‘Loan No. 6223’, in part: ‘Due to the order of Ourselves…$45.00 in gold coin of the United States of America of the present standard of weight and fineness, on the 18th day of May A.D. 1930 without grace, at the office of Lawndale National Bank in the City of Chicago…with interest after maturity until paid, at the rate of seven percent, per annum, being for an instalment of interest on our principal and note No. 5. being of even date herewith for the sum of $1500.00.’ Signed at the conclusion by Al Capone, his mother Theresa Capone, and his wife Mae Capone, and also endorsed on the reverse by all three.
