Very rare lighter gifted by Frank SInatra
Note: 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 is one of the nicest styles we've seen and one of the more rare. Like most of his lighters this was made by Nesor with the engraved "Thanks Sinatra" on it.
However, this one is particularly unique and rare as it has an added engraving of "GIL". Gil use to cut Mr Sinatra's hair at his shop in Los Angeles. The lighter was acquired from his God-son. I have heard that for more intimate friends Mr Sinatra would have their named engraved on the gifted lighters , but this is the first one we've ever seen. A gem of a find!
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"
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. 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 !
