The check for $38.69 was written by Lansky to the New England Telephone Company in 1939. It’s estimated to sell for $1,800 to $2,200 at J. Greenstein & Co.’s sale of Judaica on Monday evening.
A Sterling silver-covered book of scripture is inscribed to Adolf Schimel. He received it for his leadership as vice president and general counsel of Universal for three years. Its presale estimate is $900 to $1,200.
Both items are being sold by a Judaica collector from New York City who did not wish to be identified.
Lansky died of lung cancer in 1983.
