ABOUT THE HATS
All six of these hats were given by the owner to Friedman, who kept them on a shelf in his office. Upon his death none of these items were wanted by his family and were to thrown away. Harry Goldstein, his personal assistant, kept the hats in storage until they were sold to finally end up in the HEADS OF THE FAMILY collection.
Pictured are the hats from the crime bosses Meyer Lansky, Vito Genovese, Joseph Bonanno (below- from left to right), Carlo Gambino, Joseph Colombo and Charles “Lucky” Luciano (above- from left to right).
