Counter check, 6.25 x 2.75, filled out and signed by Monroe, "Marilyn Monroe," payable to her publicist David March for $23, August 12, 1952. Monroe fills out the entire check in her hand, noting her bank as "Bank of America, Sunset and Laurel, LA-46-Calif." At the bottom, Monroe notes her address as "2155 Hilldale." Encapsulated in a PSA/DNA authentication holder. In fine condition. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA and an unsigned color glossy photo of the young Monroe. Monroe had met legendary ballplayer Joe DiMaggio on a blind date—arranged by David March, the recipient of this payment—in March 1952, and the two were married two years later. A highly desirable autograph check from the Hollywood icon.
