Frank Sinatra's First Driver's License Being Auctioned

Frank Sinatra's First Driver's License Being Auctioned

Listen to Frank Sinatra Radio on iHeartRadio

The first driver's license Frank Sinatra received from his home state of New Jersey is up for grabs.  The 1934 card, featuring the legendary entertainer's signature, has a typo in his name.  The license was issued to "Francis Sintra," a 19-year-old brown haired, blue eyed Hoboken resident, who stood 5'8" tall and weighed 130 pounds.  

Included with the license is a March 1940 letter from an attorney to the New Jersey Commissioner of Motor Vehicles regarding a car accident in which Sinatra was found at fault.  The lawyer explains that his client had only received $7.50 of a judgement totaling more than $150, and eight months had passed since Sinatra made that payment.  The attorney requests that the commissioner "be so kind as to revoke" Sinatra's license "until the judgement has been paid." 

The Sinatra memorabilia is part of an RR Auction of Hollywood memorabilia, which ends Thursday.  Details are available at RRAuction.com
