The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

James David Graham Niven ( 1910 -1983), known as David Niven, was an English actor and novelist, best known for his roles as Phileas Fogg in Around the World in 80 Days and Sir Charles Litton, a.k.a. “the Phantom,” in The Pink Panther.

In 1967, he appeared as one of seven incarnations of “007” in the James Bond spoof Casino Royale. In fact, Niven had been Bond creator Ian Fleming’s first choice to play Bond in Dr. No. Casino Royale co-producer Charles K. Feldman said later that Fleming had written the book with Niven in mind, and therefore had sent a copy to Niven.

Niven was the only James Bond actor mentioned by name in the text of Fleming’s novels.
