1950 Boston Brinks Robbery...



Item # 643144

January 18, 1950

EVENING CHRONICLE, Allentown, Penn., January 18, 1950 

* Great Brinks Robbery (Boston, MA) 
* 1st report of the "Crime of the Century"
* Over 2 Million $$$$ stolen

The front page has a four column heading: "Million-Dollar Holdup Sets Off Big Manhunt" (see). Note: While the headline states $1 million in cash was stolen, the actual take including everything was over 2 million dollars, making it the largest robbery to-date within the United States and earning the title, "The Crime of the Century!"
Front leaf only (pages 1 & 2), nice for display as such.
