Description

    Original Carbon Invoice and Bill for Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn Monroe's death was ruled a "probable suicide" by Los Angles County Coroner Thomas Noguchi. Would someone who had just purchased flowers, flowerpots, and bird food for her garden and had furniture delivered literally hours before her death commit suicide? You decide! Offered are two items. First, the original carbon invoice from Frank's Nurseries and Flowers (ordered three days before her death). The partly printed carbon bill measures 5" x 7.75" and lists petunias, tomatoes, terra-cotta pots, hummingbird feeders, and hummingbird food. The carbon has staple holes and two files holes in the upper blank area. Next, a partly printed bill on Pilgrim's Furniture letterhead to Marilyn Monroe dated August 4, 1962. The bill measures 6" x 10.5" and is for "1 #C Chest Roman White" for $228.80, "COD," noted in ink "Rec'd check #281 in amount $228.80 Payment in Full Earl Shero." That evening, Marilyn retired to her bedroom at about 8:00 pm and was found dead in her bed eight hours later. The Pilgrim's Furniture bill has a small hole in the upper left corner. Both items are in fine condition. Accompanied by a COA from John Reznikoff, PSA/DNA.
