ANNE LANSKY. Check filled out and signed: "Anne Lansky", 6¼x2¾. Boston, Mass., 1939 January 5. Drawn on the National Shawmut Bank of Boston, payable to "Cushing Lyons Ins." for $6. Anne Lansky, the former Anna Citron, married mob financial wizard Meyer Lansky in 1929. The marriage, which produced three children, sons Bernard ("Buddy") and Paul and daughter Sandra, ended in divorce in 1946. It is said that Meyer kept his family away from mob business, but Anne became semi-psychotic and their children had miserable lives. Meyer's second marriage, to Thelma "Teddy" Schwarr in 1948, is said to have fared somewhat better. They were married until his death in 1983 (Teddy died in 1997). Stamp touches the upper loop of the "L" in Lansky. Ink smudged at "s" of Ins., bank cancellation holes nick the "C" in Cushing. Tackhead-size stain at upper left touches the printed "S" of Shamut. Overall, fine condition.
