    A Charlie Chaplin International Driver's License, 1953.
    In the form of a small pamphlet with 38 pages, text on the cover in a number of different languages notes that it's an "International Permit to Drive," cover date stamped "Lausanne / 1 Juin 1953," page 5 displays a black and white headshot of the then 64 year-old actor above his statistics penned in black fountain pen ink reading "Chaplin / Charles Spencer / Londres / 16 avril 1889 / Corsier s Vevey," same information repeated on the inside back cover; used by the legend to drive around Europe. (Please note there is tape residue on the cover and it is somewhat dirtied due to use and age.)
    6" x 4"

    Interestingly, this piece was recently featured on the History Channel's hit show, "Pawn Stars," where main guy Rick Harrison offered to pay $3,000 for it!
