Engraved "FS" on the outside & "Las Vegas 1960" inside. The cigarette case an arm is marked in tiny letters "EJB CO". I have a COA for this item. My question and reason for posting is to ID the lady in the photos. The last compartment has hidden 2 photos of a mystery lady. I've asked the Sinatra family & Shirley MacClaine neither can ID the lady. Does anyone know who she might be? Maybe she was the person who gave Frank this case as a gift back in 1960? Thanks to dave2no1's suggestion, I've removed the 2 photos from the case & have them posted (front & back). I just discovered a couple of new things #1 her name was Louise Tipsword & #2 the writing looks like Frank Sinatra's handwriting. I own a few letters, cards, etc. that are handwritten by him & this writing does resemble his. Maybe a partial answer to the mystery. Was Louise Tipsword a family friend or young girlfriend from his past? A big part of the fun is the search for clues from the past. I appreciate the suggestions I've gotten from members. Thanks!
