Authentic Lexington Hotel Floor Marble!
Harold Rubin holding a piece of Lexington Hotel marble floor fashioned into a fountain pen holder. The newly found cache of marble was stored away by Rubin who passed away in 2007. He sold these through his business called Chicago Legends.
These forgotten pieces were found in storage 10 years after Harold Rubin's death. In 1981, Harold AKA "Weird" Harold J. Rubin along with Thomas Bangs found the supposed Capone enclosure (safe) beneath The Lexington Hotel. They were the ones who got the ball rolling in 1985 for Geraldo Rivera to make the Capone Vault live show seen all over the world. The event was shown in Spring of 1986.

Back of marble.
Harold scavenged the Lexington in 1985 to take away as much from it as he could. From that came his idea to market this Lexington marble flooring. He named the venture Chicago Legends and along with a few friends he sold the pieces as such or as pen holders. Each came with a brass white metal plaque of Al Capone and a Chicago Legend stamp on the back and were numbered. Harold ventured into many different sideline businesses and gangster collecting was only a part of his hobby.
Unfortunately, Harold Rubin passed away in January of 2007, and these items were stored at a friend's house until recently discovered by Mr. Eric Stoffl. He got the items via his grandmother who kept them for Harold.
Story that appeared in Anita Gold's column in 1987. Anita often uncovered authentic gangster items for die hard collectors.
