    A Marilyn Monroe Group of Rare Black and White Contact Sheets, Early 1950s. Three total, most with evident green or red ink mark-ups; the first shows nine images of MM wearing a plush-looking ice-skating dress and ice skates (or socks) as she models in a photo session (two of the images have been cut off from the other seven); the second shows four images of MM posing on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean; and the third shows two images of MM in a dark bikini as she frolics in the Pacific; all with stamps on the verso reading in part "Globe Photos / ...N.Y.C.;" all taken in her starlet days before she was a huge star. (Please note all are slightly creased and in used condition as that was their original purpose.)
    10" x 8" and smaller
