In 1965 Esquire Magazine anointed their feature story "Sinatra Has a Cold" as the greatest story ever told at the magazine. The famed author Gay Talese mentions in his article that "Frank Sinatra gave away $50,000 worth of Gold Cigarette Lighters by the time he turned thirty"...
Here is one of those Original treasured gold lighters...
We have acquired this Frank Sinatra vintage lighter a few times over the past several years and it has consistently been one of the most ( if not THE most) desired pieces of historical Hollywood memorabilia we have offered over the last 30 years... The demand to own one of these Frank Sinatra personally owned treasures by collectors and Ultimate Gift Givers is intense! . . Lighter has typically seen light handling wear around the edges. I have NOT tested to see if it lights. But, there is no reason a new flint and fluid it will not light up, if one so chooses.
* Of all the versions of lighters Frank Sinatra use to handout to friends and those who had a fortunate encounter with him, this is by far the most desirable! . . .With its raised boxed "Thanks Frank Sinatra" Signature, it is truly a beautiful and choice piece of Hollywood & Sinatra History. These do NOT last long on our website. And are very difficult to acquire.
A terrific piece of history gifted from the Chairman of the Board himself! NOTE! These sell FAST!
A Great Find! * See enlargeable images above and below
Frank Sinatra was known to carry with him and give to friends Cigarette Lighters with his name imprinted on them as a token of his thanks. These lighters would simply say "Thanks Sinatra" or "Thanks Frank Sinatra" (earlier ones). This is the is the 14k Gold "raised letter" version and is the most desirable. THIS Is the one everyone wants to own.
What more needs to be said. We have been fortunate enough to acquire this rare piece of personal memorabilia once belonging to "Ol Blues Eyes" himself. The lighter is 14K Gold Plated. The imprinted autograph puts this lighter in the mid/late 1950s era. These have the Gold Plated raised lettering "Thanks Frank Sinatra" on the front. It is about 1.25 x 2".

** A 1965 article from Esquire mentions "Sinatra gave away $50,000 worth of gold cigarette lighters before he was thirty". It was an amazing article about Sinatra and was considered by Esquire "the greatest story ever published by Esquire".
This is a true piece of history! We have been collecting these cigarette lighters once belonging to Mr Sinatra for many years, some of which we have sold to well known celebrities. They are our BEST sellers !
