Historic newspaper in Spanish, the January 26, 1947 edition of the Panama City "La Estrella de Panama" ("The Star of Panama"), 16pp. folio, featuring numerous items on the front page, the most notable entitled "Murio anoche el celebre 'gangster' Al Capone" ("The Famous Gangster Al Capone Died Last Night"). The article, illustrated with a photo of Capone, describes his cause of death as a heart attack, and goes on to recap his life as a premier underworld figure of the Prohibition era. The paper shows some toning to the edges, with file holes at the left margin, else very good. Very few papers worldwide reported Capone's death as front-page news, while fewer still ran his photo on the occasion.
