Marilyn Monroe Bank Check

30 Sep

Bank check, 8.25 x 3, filled out in type and signed by Monroe, payable to Marilyn Monroe for $7500.00, July 13, 1961. Reverse bears a secretarial endorsement. In fine condition, with a central vertical fold, red check mark to right edge, and expected cancellation holes, with none affecting the clean signature area. In unusually clean, bright condition. The year of 1961 proved to be a difficult year for Marilyn. Her divorce from Arthur Miller was finalized in January, and her increasing dependence on alcohol and prescription medications began to take a toll on her health; two days before writing this check, she was discharged from Polyclinic Hospital following gallbladder surgery, which was her fifth hospital stay in a ten-month period. A month later, Joe DiMaggio unsuccessfully asked Marilyn to remarry him in an attempt to save her. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
