Lot details

General Description: 

Al Capone liked keeping a revolver in his golf bag and this .32 caliber was taken from his golf bag. On the 1983 Notaries It states one of his booze runners , (Charles D'Agostino/Genauldi), took the .32 S&W revolver (unknown whether this was with or without permission) in a Spalding golf ball box from Al Capone's golf bag at the St. Joseph house. He later gave it to his half brother (Dominick D'Agostino) See Notarized Letter. Dominick sold this gun to Robert Forrest in 1983 (See Notarized Letter). Al played a lot of golf here in West Michigan and had some cottages or hideouts here. The gun is 1924,  the box is 1920's (See Smith & Wesson historian letter). The current owner has contracted SSL Firearms to sell this gun at public auction with no minimums/no reserves. Please use your own judgement and inspection when evaluating provenance. This gun sells as is/where is with no guarantees or warranties expressed or applied as to provenance or history.

Condition of Online Auction Lots

**Condition of online auction items** All high bids are considered legal binding contracts and all sales are final. All items are sold "as is where is", with NO guarantee, warranty, or possible refund written, expressed, or implied. The working condition of an item may not be known and may not always be listed in the items description. Sometimes we do know and list the condition of the items, but many times do not. No refunds will be given after the 5 days time frame from date of the auction (Please note auction date NOT removal or date of payment) and any other refund is the sole discretion of a SSL Corporation manager! Please note that all sales are final regardless of the purchase items condition, unless the discretion of a SSL Corporation Manager deems differently. Please note that if an item(s) is not paid for and picked up within 5 days from the date of the auction, unless specified otherwise in the items description or in writing from the auctioneer, the item(s) and bidder will be in default, and the item(s) may be resold by the auctioneer. Any deficiency will become the expense of the high bidder who defaulted. This amount will be immediately due and payable upon the resale of that item. The auctioneer will notify the defaulted bidder of this amount, and take any legal collection actions, including charging the credit card on file, and/or the use of an attorney or collection agency for this deficiency. Online Recovery Special Consignment Sales: (all consignments must be dropped off at SSL Corp no later than 9 days prior to the auction day)

Dynamic Bidding

Posted closing times and displays of Auction Co.'s current time are approximate. Auction Co. reserves the right to close early or extend auctions at any time at its discretion. It is strongly recommended that bids be placed early to avoid losing out due to an ill-timed, last minute bid. All times based on Eastern Standard Time. Dynamic bidding - The dynamic bid on this website is a feature that does NOT allow an item to sell at the end of the auction until there is 10 minutes of bidding inactivity. Example - An item is bid on at 7:50pm. An auction is scheduled to close at 8:00pm. When this bid is placed the ending time will automatically extend to 8:10pm. When another bid is placed at 8:01 the auction will extend until 8:20pm. This will give bidder 19 minutes to place another bid. If no bids are placed this auction will conclude at 8:20pm. The key to your dynamic bidding feature is that the auction extends from the preset closing time in 10 minute intervals, NOT 10 minutes from when you placed your bid.
