American Express, $20 travelers cheque, 19xx (1950s), serial J21936888, signed by passenger, ex-Malone. With case: 12-1/2" x 8-1/4" x 2". Moderate amount of paper deterioration and stains around the edges though much of the design is still visible, particularly in a large patch in the center. Many of the Andrea Doria-recovered travelers cheques bear a similar untouched patch most likely due to being bound tightly together, preventing water incursion. A passenger's name in blue ink is faintly visible along the bottom signature line. With original display box, salvager's certificate, booklet, and informational brochure. 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
