Sinatra’s First NJ Driver’s License Sells For Nearly $16,000
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Frank Sinatra’s first New Jersey driver’s license has sold for $15,757 at auction.
The yellowed, text-only 1934 license was issued, typo and all, to Francis Sintra, 841 Garden Street, Hoboken, New Jersey.
The license was signed by the then-19-year-old a year before Sinatra got his first big break in the music industry.
His eyes, of course, are recorded as blue. His weight was 130 pounds.
Boston-based RR Auction didn’t disclose the buyer.
The deal also included a 1940 letter to the state Commissioner of Motor Vehicles from the lawyer of a man who’d been involved in a car crash with Sinatra, insisting Sinatra’s driving privileges be revoked until he pays up.
