Pawn Stars Customer Brings in Lucky Luciano's Signet Ring
Born Salvatore Lucania on November 24, 1897, Charles "Lucky" Luciano was an Italian-born gangster who operated mainly in the United States. Luciano started his criminal career in the Five Points gang and is credited with the development of the National Crime Syndicate. Luciano is considered the father of modern organized crime in the United States for the establishment of The Commission in 1931, a governing body for the Five crime families of the US mafia. He was also the first official boss of the modern Genovese crime family. Luciano died in Italy on January 26, 1962, and his body was permitted to be transported back to the United States for burial.
The owner of Lucky Luciano's signet ring claims the item to be authentic, but Rick and Corey must call in an expert to verify, in this clip from Season 5, "Ring Around A Rockne." Due to the lack of any photographs or personal accounts of the authenticity, it could not be verified as belonging to Lucky.
