54845 Gratiot Ave is the address produced by this metal die, attributed to Lincoln Fitzgerald's Detroit casino with the Purple Gang. The metal die is 2 1/4 inches tall and 1 1/2 inches in diameter.



Lincoln Fitzgerald migrated to Reno from Detroit where he had run illegal gambling operations for the notorious "Purple Gang." The Purple Gang traces back to 1902 when Harry Bernstein opened a shop at 401 Gratiot Avenue and his boys: Abe, Joey, Ray and Izzy went on to become ruthless gangsters. by the mid 1920s, it was estimated there were 15-25,000 "blind pigs" (or speakeasies ) in Detroit. It is quite probable 54845 Gratiot Ave was one of them. HWAC# 61659 Date: Location: Detroit, Michigan
