One-of-a-kind 1926 passport from the Los Angeles billionaire

Description

Getty’s personal passport, number 177717, issued on March 30, 1926. Passport measures 3.75 x 6 and is filled out in Getty’s hand inside the front cover with his address, “J. Paul Getty, 647 South Kingsley Drive, Los Angeles, Cal.,” as well as the address of his father, “George F. Getty,” as an emergency contact. Pinned to the fourth page is Getty’s glossy 2.25 x 2.5 passport photo, signed across the top in bold black ink; the adjacent page is also signed by Getty, and filled out in another hand with detailed personal information including height, hair and eye color, birthplace, birthdate, and occupation, which is listed as “Producer.” The remaining pages bear a few visa stamps from around the world, including those from England, Italy, France, and Germany. Expected cancellation holes affecting the signatures on the passport photo and adjacent page, an official embossed seal to the lower portion of the photo, and light soiling. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
