Ma Barker's Machine Gun

Item ma barkers machine gun 75x75 03
Kate "Ma" Barker (October 8, 1873 – January 16, 1935) was an American criminal from the "public enemy era", when the exploits of gangs of criminals in the Midwest gripped the American people and press. Her notoriety has since subsided, trailing behind Bonnie and Clyde and John Dillinger. The irony behind this item is that the tommy gun she was found holding (dead) is widely believed to have been planted on her by the FBI after she was killed violently by them in a raid.

John Herbert Dillinger (June 22, 1903 – July 22, 1934) was an American bank robber in the Midwest during the early 1930s. He was considered to be a dangerous criminal who was involved in the deaths of several police officers, robbed at least two dozen banks and four police stations, escaped from jail twice and was idolized by some as a modern-day Robin Hood.

The wooden gun depicted was used by Dillinger in a bold bluff to escape an Indiana prison.

Capone's Armored 341A

Item capones armored 341A 75x75 03

Alphonse Gabriel "Al" Capone (January 17, 1899 – January 25, 1947) was an American gangster who led a crime syndicate dedicated to smuggling and bootlegging of liquor and other illegal activities during the Prohibition Era of the 1920s and 1930s.

An interesting tidbit about this particular Cadillac, custom-made for Capone to look like an official Chicago Municipal vehicle:

It was one of the very first civilian vehicles to include complete bullet-proofing, a police radio, and even a siren to get Al through traffic more quickly. After he was imprisoned, and only days after the Japanese invasion of Pearl Harbor, the Secret Service was hard-pressed to put President FDR in a safe vehicle for wartime, owing to the time required to build one, and the concurrent law at the time that no government vehicle could cost more than $700.

The temporary compromise was that FDR rode around in Capone's confiscated Cadillac until one could be built for him.
