    A Marilyn Monroe Group of Never-Before-Seen Black and White Photographs from Korea, 1954. Three total, all vintage prints with a glossy finish, appearing to have been shot by a professional photographer due to quality and clarity; first one shows MM with a soldier and her travel companion, Jean O'Doul [then wife of baseball great, Lefty O'Doul], verso has stamp reading in part "Date 27/2/54;" second and third ones show MM wearing a bomber jacket as she is engulfed by a massive amount of soldiers, most of whom seem to have cameras pointing at her; also included is a small black and white snapshot taken on the same trip (but at a different time) showing MM posing with band members. (Please note the first photo of MM, soldier, and O'Doul has surface scratches.)
    3 3/4" x 4 1/2" and smaller
