Cash's new passport stating his date of birth, state of birth, height, hair and eye color, passport issue and expiry dates (2/21/1973 and 2/20/1978 respectively) and a handwritten note (in unconfirmed hand) stating "D2092337 John's New Passport #"; and a handwritten receipt for a guitar case and an auto harp case "Received of June Carter" and signed by an E.J.
