    Description

    1960 Marilyn Monroe Signed Check, PSA/DNA NM-MT 8. Check drawn on "Marilyn Monroe Productions, Inc." account makes a payment of twenty-five dollars as a "Per Diem Allowance" on July 22, 1960 to "May Reis", Monroe's longtime personal assistant and confidant. That date along with the "First National Bank of Nevada" stamping on the reverse likely means this bank note was written by Monroe during the filming of her final film, John Huston's The Misfits, which stared Clark Gable and was written by her then-husband Arthur Miller.

    The check is filled out in on a typewriter, with the signature at lower right of Monroe presenting with NM-MT (8/10) strength according to the experts at PSA. While a multitude of stampings, cancelations and changed check numbers riddle the note, the signature of the famed entertainer displays largely unencumbered. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA NM-MT 8.
