How much would a 1940 autograph from Charles Lucky Luciano?
I've seen only one Charles "Lucky" Luciano autograph. It is currently on sale on a website (starts with "A" ends with "zon") with an asking price of $40,000. It's unlikely to fetch that much, but an individual autograph that has been authenticated or with provenance might pull a couple hundred to a thousand dollars or more. Truthfully though, Luciano's signature shouldn't be that rare, although not much in circulation. Not many will be willing or interested in owning a piece of such nefarious history.

120 autographs or One autograph Book . Each of the 120 signatures would have to be valued on it's own merit. Each signature will be valued as a "cut signature". Cut Signatures are often cut from an item that has been ruined to save its value from such items as a cover of a publication, photograph…, letter or notebook on which it was originally signed. Cuts are commonly used by collectors to display with a framed photo, or for inserts by baseball card companies. If you sell the autograph book as a whole you would get less money, but more information would be needed to give a more accurate value. (MORE)
No. Lucky stated that he never wanted children, because the media had portrayed him so poorly that no child deserved to be the offspring of 'that gangster'. Many people have come along and made some sort of claim for being an illegitimate child of Luciano's, but none have been shown to have any cre…dibility. The majority are looking for money. (MORE)

Luciani was arrested for supposedly operating a large scale prostitution ring. There is speculation that the government needed his help during WWII to secure the ports of NY, where German spies and arms were trying to sneak into the country, and so he was briefly jailed before being deported. What …role he actually played, or what he even did. After being deported to Italy, he went to Cuba for some time, before the US found out and demanded Cuba send him back to Italy, which they eventually did. (MORE)
It depends go to eBay or just go to free meet and greets before shows they are free.
Depends, if its autographed by all of them, maybe 8 - 10,000 dollars. If its only autographed by one, maybe 5,000 dollars
Anywhere between $1500 US., to $4000 US. depending on how rare it is, and if the signature is real, and not faked. It also depends on what document the signature is written on, whether it is common photograph, or on a rare one of a kind document. Value depends on whether the signature is written by …hand, or photocopied. Most value is written in his own personal handwriting, with his name alone signed on it. (MORE)
Salvatore "Lucky" Luciano was born in Lercarra Friddi, Sicily, Italy on Nov. 24, 1897. His family moved to the United States in 1907, and settled in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, a popular place for many other Italians who had migrated before. At 14, Luciano dropped out of school, and worked for… $5/week as a shipping clerk, but after winning $244 in a dice game, he decided that a job was not for him, and he would make his money on the street. His parents tried to send him to a truancy school around this time as well, which proved pointless. Luciano started his own gang shortly thereafter, offering protection money to other Italians and Jews for 10 cents a week. It was during this time that he befriended a Jewish teenager that would become a business partner for many decades: Meyer Lansky. He also met the man who would be instrumental in the Mafia's move to Las Vegas, Benjamin Siegelbaum, better know today as 'Bugsy' Siegel. How Luciano gained the nickname 'Lucky' is cause for much speculation, some point to his 'luck' being able to survive a fierce beating and throat slashing, and also being 'lucky' enough to avoid spending a day in jail despite being arrested 25 times between 1916-36. A more likely source is a simple mispronunciation of Luciano's surname "Lucania", which over time simply became easier for those around him to shorten to 'Lucky'. On January 17, 1919, the Eighteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, and Prohibition lasted until the amendment was repealed in 1933. The Amendment prohibited the manufacture, sale, and transportation of alcoholic beverages. This opportunity was the first big racket for organized crime, as the public was thirsty for the booze they were now being denied, and the profits from getting it to them were substantial. By 1921, Luciano had met many future Mafia leaders, including Vito Genovese and Frank Costello, his longtime friend and future business partner through the Five Points Gang, as well as Brooklyn gang boss Joseph Masseria, who recruited Luciano as one of his gunmen. At some point in the early 1920s, Luciano left Masseria and started working for gambler Arnold "the Brain" Rothstein. Rothstein immediately saw the potential windfall from Prohibition and educated Luciano on running bootleg alcohol as a business Luciano, Costello, and Genovese started their own bootlegging operation with financing from Rothstein. Rothstein served as a mentor for Luciano. In 1923, after ruining his reputation in the criminal community with a botched drug deal, Luciano went to Rothstein for advice. Rothstein told Luciano to buy 200 expensive seats to the Jack Dempsey - Luis Firpo boxing match in the Bronx and distribute them to top gangsters and politicians. Rothstein then took Luciano on a shopping trip to Wanamaker's Department Store in Manhattan to buy high end, classy clothes for the fight. The strategy worked, and Luciano's reputation was saved. By 1925, Luciano was grossing over $12 million a year; however, he was netting only about $4 million each year due to the costs of bribing politicians and police. Luciano and his partners ran the largest bootlegging operation in New York, one that also extended into Philadelphia. He imported scotch whiskey from Scotland, rum from the Caribbean, and whiskey from Canada. Luciano was also involved in illegal gambling. On November 2, 1928, a bookie shot and killed Rothstein over a gambling debt. With Rothstein's death, Luciano quickly pledged fealty again to Masseria. Luciano soon become a top aide to Brooklyn crime boss Giuseppe Masseria. In contrast to Arnold Rothstein, Masseria was an uneducated man with poor manners and limited management skills. By the late 1920s, Masseria's main rival was boss Salvatore Maranzano, who had come from Sicily to run the Castellammarese clan activities. This rivalry eventually escalated into the Castellammarese War, which raged from 1928 to 1931 and resulted in 60 mobster deaths. Masseria and Maranzano were so-called "Mustache Petes", older, traditional mafia bosses who had started their criminal careers in Italy. Both bosses paid lip service to supposed mafia ideals of honor, tradition, respect, and dignity. Both Masseria and Maranzano refused to work with non-Italians, and Maranzano only worked with Sicilians. On one occasion, Luciano was shocked to hear traditional Sicilian mafiosi call his close friend Frank Costello "the dirty Calabrian." In contrast to the gang bosses, Luciano and his contemporaries were young, non-traditional mobsters who began their criminal careers in the United States. Known as the Young Turks, they chafed at their bosses' conservatism. Luciano wanted to use lessons he learned from Rothstein to turn their gang activities into criminal empires. Luciano also believed in working with anyone, including Jews and Irish, to make money. As the war progressed, this group came to include future mob leaders such as Frank Costello, Vito Genovese, Albert Anastasia, Joe Adonis, Joe Bonanno, Carlo Gambino, Joe Profaci, Tommy Gagliano, and Tommy Lucchese. The Young Turks believed that their bosses' greed and conservatism were keeping them poor while the Irish and Jewish gangs got rich. Many people speculate that Luciano started planning to eliminate both Masseria and Maranzano. Luciano's vision was to form a national crime syndicate in which the Italian, Jewish, and Irish gangs could pool their resources and turn organized crime into a lucrative business for all. In October 1929, Luciano was forced into a limousine at gun point by three men, beaten and stabbed, and dumped on a beach on Staten Island. He somehow survived the ordeal but was forever marked with a scar and droopy eye. The identity of his abductors was never established. When picked up by the police after the beating, Luciano said that he had no idea who did it. However, in 1953, Luciano told an interviewer that it was the police who kidnapped and beat him. Another story was that Maranzano ordered the attack.Other stories cited a jealous boyfriend and robbers. The most important consequence of this episode was the press converage it engendered, introducing Luciano to the New York public. In early 1931, Luciano moved to eliminate Masseria. The war had been going badly for Masseria, and Luciano saw an opportunity to switch allegiance. In a secret deal with Maranzano, Luciano agreed to engineer Masseria's death in return for receiving Masseria's rackets and becoming Maranzano's second-in-command. On April 15, 1931, Luciano invited Masseria and two other associates to have lunch in a Coney Island restaurant. After finishing their lunch, the mobsters decided to play cards. At that point, Luciano stepped out to go to the washroom. Four gunmen - Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel, Vito Genovese, Albert Anastasia, and Joe Adonis - then walked into the dining room and shot and killed Masseria and his two men. Luciano then took over Masseria's gang and became Maranzano's lieutenant. The Castellammarese War was over. With Masseria gone, Maranzano set out to remodel organized crime in New York along the lines of the Mafia in Sicily. Mazanzano divided all the Italian-American gangs in New York City into Five Families. The five newly formed crime families were headed by Maranzano, Luciano, Profaci, Gagliano, and Vincent Mangano. Maranzano promised that all the families would be equal and all would be free to make money. However, at a meeting of crime bosses in Upstate New York, Maranzano declared himself capo di tutti capi, (boss of bosses)--the absolute boss of all of the families in New York and the nation. Maranzano also whittled down the rackets of the rival families in favor of his own. Luciano appeared to accept this, but was merely biding his time before getting rid of Maranzano. Although Maranzano was slightly more forward-thinking than Masseria, Luciano came to believe that in his own way, Maranzano was even more greedy and hidebound than Masseria had been. By September 1931, Maranzano realized that Luciano was a threat, and hired Vincent "Mad Dog" Coll, an Irish gangster, to kill him. However, Lucchese alerted Luciano that he was marked for death. On September 10, Maranzano ordered Luciano and Genovese to come to his office at 230 Park Avenue in Manhattan. Convinced that Maranzano planned to murder them, Luciano decided to act first. He sent five Jewish gangsters dressed as government agents to Maranzano's office. While two of the "agents" disarmed Maranzano's bodyguards, the other three stabbed Maranzano multiple times before shooting him. With the death of Maranzano, Luciano became the dominant organized crime boss in the United states. He had reached the pinnacle of America's underworld, directing criminal rules, policies and activities along with the other family bosses. Luciano also his own crime family, which controlled lucrative criminal rackets in New York City such as illegal gambling, bookmaking, loan-sharking, drug trafficking and extortion. Luciano became very influential in labor and union activities and controlled the Manhattan Waterfront, garbage hauling, construction, Garment Center businesses and trucking. Luciano abolished the title of Capo Di Tutti Capi, insisting that the position created trouble between the families. Luciano preferred to quietly maintain control through unofficial alliances with other family bosses. Luciano felt that the ceremony of becoming a "made-man," or an amico nostro, in a crime family was a Sicilian anachronism that should be discontinued. However, Meyer Lansky persuaded Luciano to keep the practice, arguing that young people needed rituals to promote obedience to the family. Luciano also stressed the importance of omertÃ , the oath of silence. Finally, Luciano kept the five crime families that Maranzano had instituted. Luciano elevated his most trusted Italian associates to high-level positions in what was now the Luciano crime family. The feared Vito Genovese became underboss and Frank Costello consigliere. Michael "Trigger Mike" Coppola, Anthony Strollo, Joe Adonis, and Anthony Carfano all served as caporegimes. Because Meyer Lansky and Bugsy Siegel were non-Italians, neither man could hold official positions within any Cosa Nostra family. However, Lansky was a top advisor to Luciano and Siegel a trusted associate. Luciano, under the urging of former Chicago boss Johnny Torrio, set up the Commission to serve as the governing body for organized crime. Designed to settle all disputes and decide which families controlled which territories, the Commission has been called Luciano's greatest innovation. Luciano's goals with the Commission were to quietly maintain his own power over all the families, and to prevent future gang wars. The Commission was originally composed of representatives of the Five Families of New York City, the Philadelphia crime family, the Buffalo crime family, Los Angeles crime family! and the Chicago Outfit of Al Capone; later, the Detroit crime family and Kansas City crime family were added. The Commission also provided representation for the Irish and Jewish criminal organizations in New York. All Commission members were supposed to retain the same power and had one vote, but in reality some families and bosses were more powerful than others. In 1935, in its first big test, the Commission ordered gang boss Dutch Schultz to drop his plans to murder Special Prosecutor Thomas Dewey. Luciano argued that a Dewey assassination would precipitate a massive law enforcement crackdown. When Schultz announced that he was going to kill Dewey in the next three days, the Commission arranged Schultz's murder. On October 24, 1935, Shultz was murdered in a tavern in Newark, New Jersey. The organized crime world learned not to defy Luciano's Commission. During the early 1930s, Luciano's crime family started taking over small scale prostitution operations in New York City. In June 1935, New York Governor Herbert H. Lehman appointed U.S. Attorney Thomas E. Dewey as a special prosecutor to combat organized crime in New York City. Dewey soon realized that he could attack Luciano, the most powerful gangster in New York, through this prostitution network. On February 2, 1936, Dewey launched a massive police raid against 200 brothels in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Ten men and 100 women were arrested. However, unlike previous vice raids, Dewey did not release the arrestees. Instead, he took them to court where a judge set bails of $10,000, far beyond their means to pay. By mid March, several defendants had implicated Luciano . Three of these prostitutes implicated Luciano as the ringleader, who made collections, although David Betillo was in charge of the prostitution ring in New York, and any money that Luciano received was from Betillo. In late March 1936, Luciano received a tip that he was going to be arrested and fled to Hot Springs, Arkansas. Unfortunately for Luciano, a New York detective in Hot Springs on a different assignment spotted Luciano and notified Dewey. On April 1, 1936, Luciano was arrested in Hot Springs on a criminal warrant from New York. The next day in New York, Dewey indicted Luciano and his accomplices on 90 counts of compulsory prostitution. Luciano's lawyers in Arkansas then began a fierce legal battle against extradition. On April 6, someone offered a $50,000 bribe to Arkansas Attorney General Carl E. Bailey to facilitate Luciano's case. However, Bailey refused the bribe and immediately reported it. On April 17, after all of Luciano's legal motions had been exhausted, Arkansas authorities handed Luciano to three New York City Police Department detectives for transport by train back to New York for trial. When the detectives and their prisoner reached St. Louis, Missouri and changed trains, they were guarded by 20 local policemen to prevent a mob rescue attempt. The men arrived in New York City on April 18, and Luciano was held without bail. On May 13, 1936, Luciano's pandering trial began. During the trial, Dewey exposed Luciano for lying on the witness stand through direct quizzing and records of telephone calls; Luciano also had no explanation for why his federal income tax records claimed he made only $22,000 a year, while he was obviously a wealthy man. Dewey ruthlessly pressed Luciano on his long arrest record and his relationships with well-known gangsters such as Ciro Terranova, Louis Buchalter, and Joseph Masseria. On June 7, 1936, Luciano was convicted on 62 counts of compulsory prostitution. On July 18, 1936, Luciano was sentenced to 30 to 50 years in state prison, along with Betillo and others. Many observers questioned the pandering charges against Luciano. He almost certainly profited from prostitution and members of his crime family extorted money from madams and brothel keepers. However, like most bosses, Luciano created layers of insulation between himself and criminal acts. It would have been significantly out of character for him to be to be directly involved in any criminal enterprise, let alone a prostitution ring. In her memoirs, New York society madam Polly Adler said that if Luciano had been involved in prostitution, she would have known about it. Bonanno also denied that Luciano was directly involved in prostitution in his book, A Man of Honor. Luciano continued to run the Luciano crime family from prison, relaying his orders through acting boss, Vito Genovese. However, in 1937 Genovese fled to Naples, Italy to avoid an impending murder indictment in New York. Luciano appointed Consigliere Frank Costello as the new acting boss and the overseer of Luciano's interests. Luciano was first imprisoned at Sing Sing Correctional Facility in Ossining, New York, but was moved later in 1936 to Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York, far away from New York City. At Clinton, co-defendant Dave Betillo prepared special dishes for Luciano in a kitchen set aside by authorities. Luciano was assigned a job in the prison laundry. Luciano used his influence to help get the materials to build a church at the prison, which became famous for being one of the only freestanding churches in the New York State correctional system and also for the fact that on the church's altar are two of the original doors from the Victoria, the ship of Ferdinand Magellan. Legal appeals of Luciano's conviction continued until October 10, 1938, when the U.S. Supreme Court refused to review his case. During World War II, the U.S. government struck a secret deal with the imprisoned Luciano. In 1942, the U.S. Office of Naval Intelligence was concerned about German and Italian agents entering the United States through the New York waterfront. They also worried about sabotage in these facilities. Knowing that the Cosa Nostra controlled the waterfront, the Navy contacted Meyer Lansky about a deal with Luciano. To facilitate negotiations, the State of New York transferred Luciano from Clinton prison to Great Meadow Correctional Facility, which was much closer to New York City. The Navy, the State of New York and Luciano eventually concluded a deal. In exchange for a commutation of his sentence, Luciano promised the complete assistance of his organization in providing intelligence to the Navy. Luciano ally Albert Anastasia, who controlled the docks, allegedly promised no dockworker strikes during war. In preparation for the 1943 allied invasion of Sicily, Luciano allegedly provided the U.S. military with mafia contacts in Sicily. However, the value of Luciano's contribution to the war effort is highly debated. In 1947, the naval officer in charge of Operation Underworld discounted the value of Luciano's wartime aid. However a 1954 report ordered by Governor Dewey stated that Luciano provided many valuable services to Naval Intelligence. Another source states that Luciano allegedly said in later years that his contribution to the war effort had been a sham, designed purely to obtain his release from prison. The enemy threat to the docks, Luciano allegedly said, was manufactured by the sinking of the SS Normandie in New York harbor, supposedly directed by Anastasia's brother, Anthony Anastasio. However, the official investigation of the ship sinking found no evidence of sabotage. Luciano also allegedly said that he did little to help the Allies in Italy. On January 3, 1946, as a presumed reward for his alleged wartime cooperation, now Governor Thomas E. Dewey reluctantly commuted Luciano's pandering sentence on condition that he does not resist deportation to Italy. Luciano accepted the deal, although he still maintained that he was a U.S. citizen and not subject to deportation. On February 2, 1946, two federal immigration agents transported Luciano from Sing Sing prison to Ellis Island in New York Harbor for deportation proceedings. On February 9th, the night before his departure, Luciano shared a spaghetti dinner on his freighter with Anastasia and five other guests. On February 10, 1946, Luciano's ship sailed from Brooklyn harbor for Italy. This was the last time he would see the United States. On February 28th, after a 17 day voyage, Luciano's ship arrived in Naples. On arrival, Luciano told reporters he would probably reside in Sicily. Luciano was deeply hurt about having to leave the United States, a country he had considered his own ever since his arrival at age ten. During his exile, Luciano frequently encountered US military men and American tourists during train trips in Italy. Luciano enjoyed these meetings and gladly posed for photographs and signed autographs. In October 1946, Luciano secretly moved to Havana, Cuba. Luciano first took a freighter from Naples to Caracas, Venezuela, then flew to Rio De Janeiro. He then flew to Mexico City and doubled back to Caracas, where he took a private plane to Camaguey, Cuba, finally arriving on October 29. Luciano was then driven to Havana, where he moved into an estate in the Miramar section of the city. Luciano's objective in going to Cuba was to be closer to the United States so that he could resume control over American Cosa Nostra operations and eventually return to the United States. Lansky was already established as a major investor in Cuban gambling and hotel projects. In 1946, Lansky called a meeting of the heads of the major crime families in Havana that December. The ostensible reason was to see singer Frank Sinatra perform. However, the real reason was to discuss mob business with Luciano in attendance. The three topics to discuss: the heroin trade, Cuban gambling, and what to do about Bugsy Siegel and the foundering Flamingo Hotel project in Las Vegas. The Conference took place at the Hotel Nacional de Cuba and lasted a little more than a week. On December 20, during the conference, Luciano had a private meeting with Genovese in Luciano's hotel suite. In 1945, Genovese had been returned from Italy to New York to face trial on his 1934 murder charge. However, in June 1946, the charges were dismissed and Genovese was free to return to mob business. Unlike Costello, Luciano never trusted Genovese. In the meeting, Genovese tried to convince Luciano to become a titular boss of bosses and let Genovese run everything. Luciano calmly rejected Genovese's suggestion:. There is no Boss of Bosses. I turned it down in front of everybody. If I ever change my mind, I will take the title. But it won't be up to you. Right now you work for me and I ain't in the mood to retire. Don't you ever let me hear this again, or I'll lose my temper.. Soon after the Havana Conference began, the U.S. government learned about Luciano in Cuba. Luciano had been publicly fraternizing with Sinatra as well as visiting numerous nightclubs, so his presence was no secret in Havana. The U.S. started putting pressure on the Cuban government to expel him. On February 21, 1947, U.S. Narcotics Commissioner Harry J. Anslinger notified the Cuban government that the United States would block all shipment of narcotic prescription drugs to Cuba while Luciano was there. Two days later, the Cuban government announced that Luciano was in custody and would be deported to Italy within 48 hours. Luciano was placed on a Turkish freighter that was sailing to Genoa, Italy. After his secret trip to Cuba, Luciano would spend the rest of his life in Italy under constant watch from the local authorities. When Luciano arrived in Genoa from Cuba on April 11, 1947, he was arrested and sent to a jail in Palermo. On May 11, a regional commission in Palermo warned Luciano to stay out of trouble and released him from jail. In early July 1949, police in Rome arrested Luciano on suspicion of involvement in the shipping of narcotics to New York. On July 15, after a week in jail, police released Luciano without filing any charges. He was also permanently banned from visiting Rome. On June 9, 1951, Luciano was questioned by police in Naples on suspicions of illegally bringing $57,000 in cash and a new American car into Italy. After 20 hours of questioning, police released Luciano without any charges. In 1952, the Italian government revoked Luciano's Italian passport after complaints from US and Canadian law enforcement officials. On November 19, 1954, an Italian judicial commission in Naples applied strict limits on Luciano for two years. He was required to report to the police every Sunday, to stay home every night, and to not leave Naples without police permission. The commission cited Luciano's alleged involvement in the narcotics trade as the reason for these restrictions. Despite the law enforcement surveillance, Luciano was able to greatly expand narcotics trafficking to the United States by Cosa Nostra, making it one of organized crime most lucrative ventures. Between October 10 and October 14, 1957 Luciano oversaw a parley of more than thirty Sicilian and American Mafia leaders to draw up plans for the smuggling and distribution of heroin into the United States. According to Selwyn Raab, an investigative reporter for The New York Times who covered organized crime and criminal justice matters for twenty-five years, it was at the Luciano meeting, held in the Grand Hotel et des Palmes in Palermo, Sicily, that a plan was put into place through which Sicilians were responsible for distributing heroin in the U.S., while the American mobsters collected a share of the income as "franchise fees." Luciano's plan included a scheme to expand the then tiny heroin and cocaine market in the U.S. by reducing the price and focusing on working class black and white urban neighborhoods. Personal life In early 1948, Luciano met Igea Lissoni, an Italian nightclub dancer 20 years his junior, whom he later described as the love of his life. In the summer, Lissoni moved in with him. Although some reports said the couple married in 1949, others state that they only exchanged rings. Luciano and Lissoni lived together in Luciano's house in Naples. Although Luciano adored Lissoni, he continued to have affairs with other women. This led to numerous arguments with Lissoni, with Luciano striking her on several occasions.In 1959, Lissoni died of breast cancer. Luciano never had any children. He once provided his reasons for that:. I didn't want no son of mine to go through life as the son of Luciano, the gangster. That's one thing I still hate Dewey for, making me a gangster in the eyes of the world. . The American Power Struggle By 1957, Genovese felt strong enough to move against Luciano and his acting boss in New York, Frank Costello. He was aided in this move by Anastasia crime family underboss Carlo Gambino. On May 2, 1957, Costello was shot and slightly wounded by a gunman outside of his apartment building. Soon after this attack, Costello conceded control of what is called today the Genovese crime family to Genovese. Luciano was powerless to stop it. On October 26, 1957, Genovese and Gambino arranged the murder of Albert Anastasia, another Luciano ally. Gambino took over what is now called the Gambino crime family. Genovese now believed himself to be the top boss in the Cosa Nostra. In November 1957, Genovese called a meeting of Cosa Nostra bosses in Apalachin, New York to approve his takeover of the Luciano family and to establish his national power. Instead, the Apalachin Meeting turned into a terrible fiasco when law enforcement raided the meeting. Over 65 high ranking mobsters were arrested and the Cosa Nostra was subjected to publicity and numerous grand jury summons. The enraged mobsters blamed Genovese for this disaster, opening a window of opportunity for Genovese's opponents. Costello, Luciano, and Gambino met in a hotel in Palermo, Sicily, to discuss their plan of action. In his own power move, Gambino had deserted Genovese. After their meeting, Luciano allegedly paid an American drug seller $100,000 to falsely implicate Genovese in a drug deal. On April 4, 1959, Genovese was convicted in New York of conspiracy to violate federal narcotics laws. Sent to prison for 15 years, Genovese tried to run his crime family from prison until his death in 1969. Meanwhile, Gambino now became the most powerful man in the Cosa Nostra. Death & Legacy On January 26, 1962, Luciano died of a heart attack at Naples International Airport. Luciano had gone to the airport to meet with American producer Martin Gosch about a film biography. To avoid antagonizing other Cosa Nostra members, Luciano had refused to authorize a film, but reportedly relented after Lissoni's death. After the meeting with Gosch, Luciano was stricken and died. Unbeknownst to Luciano, Italian drug agents had followed him to the airport in anticipation of arresting him on drug smuggling charges. On January 29, 1962, 300 people attended a funeral service for Luciano in Naples. After receiving permission from the US government, Luciano's relatives brought his body back to New York for burial. He was buried in St. John's Cemetery in Middle Village, Queens. More than 2,000 mourners attended his funeral. Luciano's longtime friend, Gambino crime family boss Carlo Gambino, eulogized him at the funeral. Carlo Gambino was the only other boss besides Luciano to have complete control of the Commission and virtually every Mafia family in the United States. In popular culture proponents of the Mafia and its history often debate as to who was the greater between Luciano and his contemporary Al Capone. The much publicized exploits of Al Capone with the Chicago Outfit made him the most famous mobster in American history, however Capone did not command influence over other Mafia families; something Luciano did in creating and running The Commission. For being the Mafia hegemon in the era of landmark mobsters like Albert Anastasia, Frank Costello, Meyer Lansky, Bugsy Siegel, Tommy Lucchese, Carlo Gambino and Vito Genovese all of whom he led, Charles Lucky Luciano is considered by many to have been the most powerful Mafia boss of all time. In 1998, Time magazine characterized Luciano as the "criminal mastermind" among the top 20 most influential builders and titans of the 20th century. There were mobsters before and after Lucky Luciano, but none of them came close to having the impact he did, not only on organized crime, WWII, and many other aspects of life, but he epitimized what a true mafioso was; ruthlessly brilliant.

By all beatles, $3,000 USD. By one beatle, $800 USD. By 2 beatles, $1,600 USD.. The value depends enormously on certification; if there is any documentation to prove that the album was signed by all four Beatles then the value will be greatly enhanced, if the album is a later one (particula…rly Abbey Road), then that will also add to the value. Many Beatles signatures were actually done by the road managers (Mal Evans or Neil Aspinall). Also, there is an anecdote about George Harrison that he was asked to sign a Beatles album and after doing so, he said, "Would you like the others as well?", and added the other three - he said that they could all do each others.

Lucky Luciano took advantage of prohibition, passed in 1919, and began selling bootleg liquor. During the 20's, he also met Arnold Rothstein, who among other things was famous for fixing the 1919 World Series. When he died in 1928, Luciano took over many of his rackets. In October 1929, Luciano was… forced into a limousine at gun point by three men, beaten and stabbed, and dumped on a beach on Staten Island . He somehow survived the ordeal but was forever marked with a scar and droopy eye (MORE)
Luciano never started a hit squad. Bugsy Siegel was one of the hitmen Lucky used for the hit on Giuseppe Masseria , but he didnt have set group of guys he used for hits, and didnt start a hit squad. You might be thinking of Murder, Inc. or the DeMeo crew, famous hit squads.

Salvatore 'Lucky' Luciano was a memeber of the Cosa Nostra organized crime syndicate. He operated in New York, and was the boss of whats now called the Genovese crime family (renamed after Vito Genovese) one of the '5 Families' of Italian mob families that control the rackets in NYC.

This question is almost impossible to answer. First, thousands of gangland killings are unsolved and have no evidence linking anyone. Not to mention, hundreds more bodies 'dissapear', a la Jimmy Hoffa. Second, omerta (the code of silence) prohibits mafia members from discussing business with anyon…e outside the family. Lastly, I think he likely killed someone himself, at least early on. But when youre a man of his stature, you have other people do that for you. The amount of people he killed himself, and the amount of people he ordered killed, is something that would be impossible to determine. (MORE)
Organized crime is almost entirely a cash business. While he likely had some assets in banks or owned property, etc. the majority of his money was like cash, and much of it was in other countries where the FBI couldnt find it. He was making, after paying off bribes, about $4-6M/year, and likely mor…e toward the end. Where the money went is no different than asking where the money was when he was alive. These guys arent stupid, the dont deposit bags of cash into the local bank. They have complex and elaborate ways of funneling it around, making it virtually impossible to find.

Yes he did. When Luciano became leader of mobsters, he was given the title cappo di tutti cappi, but he denied it. Instead of that, he created a comission, in which every family boss was equal, but still, he was in charge in that commission... Al Capone was in that commission, as boss of one of …the family (there was five), Chicago family... But, in the end, every boss, including Al Capone, was answering to Luciano. (MORE)

There is much speculation about how Luciano got the nickname 'Lucky'. Some say it was because he was 'lucky' enough to survive a severe beating and throat slashing, which left him with a droopy eye. Another theory is that he was 'lucky' enough to avoid spending a day in prison despite being arrested… 25 times between 1916-1936. A more likely explination is a simple mispronunciations of Luciano's surname "Lucania", which was eventually just shortened to 'Lucky'. There is no definitive answer, and despite its popularity in recent years, its was probably rarely used by rank and file members of the mafia; Don Salvatore, Don Luciano, or Sally (short for Salvatore) were likely what most people used to talk with him. Similarly, Benjamin Segielbaum, aka 'Bugsy' Segiel, is thought to have disliked being called Bugsy, preffereing 'Benny', though those close to him were allowed to use the nickname. Im many areas of Cosa Nostra, nicknames are reserved for men of respect, and no underling calls their superior by a nickname without expressed consent. (MORE)

While it's well known that some members of Cosa Nostra were very close to Frank Sinatra, and the Godfather's depiction of Vito Corleone getting that singer (his name escapes me at this moment - Johnny Fontane?) out of his contract by giving the record company 'an offer they cant refuse' is based upo…n Sinatra's own, identical situation being resolved by his Mafia friends, I do not believe that any PUBLIC pictures show Sinatra with Luciano alone. I have seen photos of Sinatra with Carlo Gambino, amongst other mobsters, but never with Lucky in it as well. Sinatra did perform for many Cosa Nostra members in private shows, including for a recently deported Luciano in Havana, but you have to remember that A) most mobsters dont want their photos taken unless they know the guy holding the camera, and B) Sinatra probably didnt want to flaunt the fact that he was heavily associated with mob members, especially considering Lucky's reputation at that time. Once Luciano was deported, including for the show Sinatra was said to do in Havana, your camera would be smashed over your head, with you being beaten within an inch of your death, if you tried to take a picture of Luciano. The last thing he wanted was the government knowing he went to Cuba, instead of staying in Italy, and - aside from John Gotti, what mobster of Lucky's stature do you see in any sort of pictures? I'd love to see one if it exists, but Ive dont research in a lot of different places, and to the best of my knowledge, Luciano & Sinatra dont have one together.

Lucky Luciano never had any children, because he feared having children that would follow in his path. Anyone who says that Lucky had offspring is either confused or lying.
While likely credited more than he probably was solely responsible for (some think he was the one who divided NYC into 5 families, which is incorrect), Salvatore "Lucky" Luciano was instrumental in not only changing the dynamics of Italian organized crime in the US, but is the only member of the sup…posed secret group known as Cosa Nostra ('this thing of ours') that the US Government actually approached for HELP during WWII. The Comission: Many with any sort of mafia interest have probably heard of the title capo di tutti cappi - boss of all bosses. The person with this title was not only the boss of his own family, but the boss of every other family as well (hence 'boss of all bosses). This made one person the most powerful mob boss in the entire country, and made one person able to basically control every racket in the US. In theory, this sounds great if you have the title, but heavy is the head that wears the crown, and not only are you talking about a title that dozens of other guys would love to put a bullet in the back of your head to take for themselves, but you also automatically become the FBI's #1 target. Why go after just anyone when you can go for the boss of ALL THE BOSSES? And you could have several bitter heads of other families, believing themselves more deserving, helping hit squads and the law track you down. Luciano realized the potential for problems, and decided on another angle. The Comission consisted of a representitive of each of the USA's crime families (NYC's 5 Families, The Chicago Outfit, Florida, Philly Mob, LA Mob, No Orleans Mob, etc etc) meeting - much like a board of directors would, with the goal being to resolve issues there peacefully, while ensuring everyone got an equal opportunity to be heard, and treated with the same level of respect. Its believed that despite Meyer Lansky succesfully getting Benjamin 'Bugsy' Segul's life spared several times, when the final decision fell before the comission - Lansky, a member of the Jewish Mafia, thus carrying no vote with the Italians - could do nothing to change the fact that the majority felt was that Bugsy had to go. This was a major development for organized crime for several reasons. First, it established a set of rules that applied to everyone, allowing the National Crime Syndicate (which was the comission's many members from accross the country) to move to a structure that resembled a large corporation, rather than the commonly accepted idea that they were little more than street thugs who operated independently. It also allowed the various families to pool their resources, discuss ways they could make more money together, decide upon proper solutions for problems, seek advice from one another, and openly say whatever they wanted to (so long as nobody openly disprespected or insulted another member of the commission) if they had something they needed to clear the air about. Not to be overlooked, one of the most important rules agreed upon was that the act of killing another boss without approval from the entire commission was punishable by death. For many, many years, nobody was really safe, and underlings often tried to overthrow their boss, figuring taking them out ensured they were handed the reigns of power. Killing your superior had become a fast track to the top, but Luciano saw the big problem with it: it was bad publicity, which was bad for business, which costed people money. There were times when somebody needed to go, it was frankly the cost of doing business, but a regular made guy that nobody outside of Cosa Nostra knew anything about might make a small blurb on the back page; a BOSS is usually somebody well known that will draw lots of attention from the media and law enforcement; two entities you dont want sniffing around your business. This also gave the commission an active role in assigning a new boss when one family lost one, ensuring that the opinions of everyone would play a part in selecting a guy that was not only popular amongst his crew, but would also (hopefully) be a beneficial choice for everyone. This concept of Cosa Nostra, as a whole, making decisions together, rather than each family doing as they pleased, allowed them to operate a little further below the radar of the public, and spare themselves any more bloody fueds. Instead of losing money with infighting and bad publicity they could now make even more money working together, and the boss of each family was able to voice their complaints and concerns without having to fear retaliation for doing so. John Gotti directly violated this rule by having Big Paulie Castellano whacked and taking over the Gambino Family. While some chose to look the other way, Vincent 'The Chin' Gigante was said to have made at least one attempt at Gotti's life, and several others were thought to have endorsed taking him out. They really should have, because Gotti was everything the mafia didnt want; he was constantly flaunting who he was to the media and public, he wasnt be nearly as careful as he shouldve been when discussing business, and he was arrested several times with his brief stint as Don, and while 'teflon' for many of those charges, he was eventually handed a lifetime sentence after 7 years on top, which also caused his underboss (then the highest ranking Mafia figure to do so) to turn state's evidence after hearing repeated audio recordings of Gotti badmouthing him, and trying to blame him for everything Gotti was accused of. Gotti severly hurt the Gambino rackets, as well as the other families interests, and I have to think him being immediately whacked in 1985 might have changed their fortunes. WWII With Lucky Luciano sitting in a prison cell, the US Government thought they might have the leverage they needed. It was well known that the NYC Ports were controlled by the Mafia, and despite which family had which parts of it, they knew talking to Luciano was as good of better than talking to a dozen others. They approached Meyer Lansky, and asked him if he could see if Lucky would be interested in hearing what they had to offer. Shortly thereafter, Lansky gave them the news they wanted to hear: Luciano will entertain them long enough to hear what they wanted, though ensured them that if they were looking for a rat or informant, they were asking the wrong guy. What they government really wanted was security on the ports. This wasnt about what the Italians were doing; it was about what they hoped to stop the Germans from doing. A corrupt port, easy to sneak in what you want for the right price sounded like a potential dissaster if Germany was able to get whatever they wanted onto American soil, unnoticed. They wanted Luciano to ensure that no spies, troops, weapons, explosives, etc got through. Basically, they needed him to ensure that the ports would be safe from any infiltration by Germany or Japan, and that he could make contacts in Italy to make sure nothing headed from there was dangerous or contained anything they needed to worry about. Lucky, with a cold stare that few other than he possed, looked at the men momentarily, told them he could do all of that and more, but then got to the real issue; what was his motivation in all this? Eventually a deal was worked which allowed him his immediate release, with the only condition being that he would be immediately deported back to Sicily, stripped of his American citizenship. That wasnt great news, but you know what? A comfy bed with food from a fancy resturant in Rome, Palermo, Naples, or anywhere else in the old country, sounded a whole hell of a lot better than a jail cell, so the deal was made. A man of his word, the docks were never comprimised, and a German boat hiding off the coast a few miles away was also discovered and destroyed. Never once did a security breach of any kind occur. When it came to staying in Italy, though - he went along with it, departed the plane in Naples, and shortly thereafter, found himself going back over the Atlantic to Cuba. In Havana, a mafia-run casino stronghold, he was close to America, and able to keep in touch with his American contacts. Eventually, the US caught wind and he was forced to go back to Italy, but that happens when you have Frank Sinatra and dozens of know Cosa Nostra mafioso visit you... Just a reminder - for as high and mighty as anyone in this country ever wants to be, just remember that we asked one of the most reputed mobsters in history for help during WWII. This wasnt the first time, and it wont be the last time, that we sleep with the devil to get rid of the demons. (MORE)
Lucky Luciano was born on November 24, 1897 and died on January 26, 1962. Lucky Luciano would have been 64 years old at the time of death or 117 years old today.
He didnt have any children at all. He thought that it would be a terrible thing to have a child born who had to deal with being the 'gangsters' kid.
Let me clarify a couple of things. First, Al Capone did NOT work for Luciano, nor did Luciano work for Capone. Lucky had absolutely no money coming to him from The Chicago Outfit's rackets, and vice versa - with Capone having zip headed his way from NYC. Furthermore, neither had the power to tell t…he other one what to do, nor would either even consider doing so. When you're talking about the likes of Capone, Luciano, Genovese, Trafficante and Gambino - you are talking about guys who were respected by everyone in Cosa Nostra, and nothing would be more disrespectful than to attempt to assert any kind of control over the other's rackets. The idea of the comission was for these powerful bosses to come together and discuss - as equals - what should be done about problems they had, or opportunities that may present themselves. Nobody's vote meant more than anyone else's, and if more people disagreed with Luciano than not, he didnt get his way. It was made to keep the peace, bloodshed is bad for business and Lucky knew that. Be it Capone, Luciano, or Gambino...they were all smart enough to realize that conceeding a little here and there goes a long way, and they were all there to come to resolutions together. Nobody's opinion was weighed more heavily than anyone else's. Second, as far as the commission goes, yes - Luciano was the CHAIRMAN of the commission, but thats not capo di tutto capi (boss of bosses) at all. Its not different than hosting a meeting today with several large companies, and inviting CEO's from several Fortune 500 firms. The fact that you organize and speak at the MEETING (i.e. topics to discuss, location, endorsements for people to get promotions, etc) does not mean you control the PEOPLE at the meeting. Its no different than presidents from different nations having a meeting to decide what is the best way to help everyone, because they all know that telling them 'Im the boss here, we do it my way' makes more enemies than not, and leads you to resentments, which in Cosa Nostra - leads to bodies. Luciano was a ruthless killer who would not hesitate to have anyone whacked whom he saw fit, but he also picked his battles, and realized that it hurt EVERYBODY'S income and caused a lot of unwanted attention. Basically, the comission was there to ensure that everybody was respected and treated as an equal member, whose opions mattered just as much as the next guy. Im Italian, and let me tell you, the last thing you would ever do is pretend to have a meeting where everyone gets to have a say, then telling them too bad we're doing it my way, or my vote means more. Might as well whack yourself at that point. Luciano himself did away with the capo di tutti cappi title (basically, 'Don' for you Godfather fans), because it was risky, unnecesary, and lead to a lot of unhappy mafioso who could dime you out because they wanted it or thought someone else deserved it more. Lucky knew very early on that any in-fighing or bloodshed between the commission was bad for business and took years to resolve, and the best way to accomplish a long standing peace was to ensure everyone came to the table as unquestioned equals. Carlo Gambino was the last person in the American Cosa Nostra to be regarded as the 'boss of all bosses', but that was mainly due to the fact that the Gambino family was the largest and most powerful for many years, (basically until Gambino 'retired' before passing). People may be confusing the fact that Lucky and Gambino had the most widespread rackets as them having the most pull with the other families, which is not true. Nobody can intrude on another families turf, racket, soilder, etc with permission from the ENTIRE comission. If Lucky or Gambino gave you permission to whack Genovese, but you didnt ask everyone else on the comission as well and went through with it, you would be taken out, no questions, and Luciano and Gambino would have to explain themselves to everyone else or face a death sentence as well. The point Im making in all this rambling is that the reason Luciano did away with the capo di tutti cappi title in the first place, and instituted the comission, is so that no one head of a family held more power, or more accurately - respect, than another. He knew cappo di tutti cappi was going to be what every boss wanted, and that it would result in a lot of killing of the top guys, which is bad for business, and risky with law enforcement. An unknown associate/made guy at the bottom of the ladder is killed? Back page news, likely unnoticed, nobody knows who the guy was or even how involved in 'this thing of ours' he was. Lucky Luciano or Carlo Gambino killed? BAD for everyone, HUGE in your face reminder that the Mafia is out there. The best thing for them all was to keep things as secret and peaceful as possible (note: as POSSIBLE; people still needed to be whacked, and business still ran as usual, but high profile murder = money out of their pockets). Cops, FBI Agents and Judges on their payrolls are going to run the other way if theyre now dealing with people leaving high profile bodies, not to mention - with the amount of rats that have polluted the last couple of decades, who wants to stand out that much? "Oh, HEY FBI - GET ME, GET ME! I'M NOT JUST ANY BOSS RUNNING A CRIMINAL SYNDICATE, I'M THE BOSS OF ALL BOSSES! " Might as well just turn yourself in now... As an example of what a high profile mob boss' untimely death can cause, John Gotti's hostile takeover ultimately put him right in the FBI's sights, and they were onto all his rackets, bugged everwhere they could, and he was arrested and charged a BUNCH of times during is 7 year reign before being sent away for life. He beat a few cases, and yes the punk piece of s*** rate Gravanno dimed him out (though Gotti is a scum for trying to dump his charges off on Sammy, too), but he walked around like he could do no wrong and didnt care who saw it. He's lucky Chin or several other bosses who had a $$$ on his head didnt get to him first, but once he got Big Paulie whacked, his days were numbered. You dont want to be THE guy, you want to be no more important or noticable than any number of guys. The Feds are always looking to take down THE guy, he's the biggest prize there is, but he doesnt make any more money than anyone else. Trust me, Capone, Gambino and Genovesse never kicked up to Luciano... (MORE)
