Five total, all dated "November 1, 1963," all between the singer's various publishing companies set up for her record sales ["Francon Music Corp.," "Efsee Music, Inc.," etc.] and the various "sales managers" she paid royalties to, signed in blue ballpoint ink on the second page of each document "Connie Francis," each contract stapled to a light blue folder from the firm of Pryor & Braun in New York City. (Please note all contracts are somewhat yellowed and brittle due to age.)

Included with a 'Certificate of Authenticity' hand-signed by Connie Francis.
"These were music publishing companies that I owned and that were run by my father. We published my songs as well as those of other songwriters, musicians, and composers. My father and I sold one part of our business -- Francon Music Corporation -- to Morris Levy of Roulette Records back in 1967 for $750,000 -- quite a tidy sum fifty years ago!"
