American Express, $10 travelers cheque, 19xx (1950s), serial F33178160, signed by passenger James V., ex-Malone. With case: 12-1/2" x 8-1/4" x 2". Similar in appearance to the prior two lots and, in fact, probably in the same bundle together when stored in the safe back in 1956. Moderate saltwater damage and staining with an untouched area in the center. Surprisingly, the signatures of the cheque's original owner can still be seen on the countersignature line at the bottom and the payee line at center (apparently he didn't need the check anymore and signed it over to himself). We can make out "James V." quite clearly but the last name eludes us. With original display box, salvager's certificate, and booklet. Pedigreed to the collection of diver Bart Malone, past curator of the Museum of New Jersey Maritime History. Recovered from: Andrea Doria, sunk in 1956 off Massachusetts
