Al Capone Bertillion Card. "Scarface" Al Capone spent part of his first prison term at Eastern State Penitentiary in 1929 and 1930. His intake record cites his crime, "C.C.D.W.," (Carrying a Concealed Deadly Weapon), his alleged occupation (ìCutter. Paper & Leatherî), his suspicion in two previous murder investigations (both "Dis.," or dismissed), and catalogs his famous scars. Capone's signature appears at the bottom. Capone lived at Eastern State Penitentiary in relative luxury, according to the Philadelphia Public Ledger. Their reporter described fine furniture, "tasteful paintings," oriental rugs, and a deluxe radio in his cell. Seventeen years after Capone's release from Eastern State, an officer in the Records Division made the final addition to his record: "Died - 1947."
