The Bug & Meyer Mob was formed in 1921 by Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky, where Meyer was the brains and Bugsy was the brawn. It was a gun-for-hire gang, but their forte was taking on contracts, (AKA) "hitmen". "Lucky" Luciano (a childhood friend of both) and Lansky formed the national crime syndicate "Murder Inc." in 1930, while Bugsy would head out to Las Vegas Nevada and open a casino, the "Flamingo" or As known now, The Flamingo Las Vegas.
To show his best friend how much he appreciated his efforts and loyalty, Bugsy gave Meyer these sterling silver dice on the opening night of the Flamingo Las Vegas. Meyer was a well known dice man growing up and this was the ultimate gift. Inscribed: To M L from B S dated 12 26 46
This is the letter from the Lansky family that accompanies the pair of sterling silver dice given to Myer Lansky by Bugsy Siegel. The night of 12-26-1946 at the Grand Opening of the Flamingo in Las Vegas Nevada.
The ultimate Flamingo Las Vegas collectible.
