This is the marker that ID’d her final resting place. Now, more than 30 years later, it’s up for grabs.

Heritage Auctions tells us opening bid is $10k, but it’s expected to haul in a lot more — a marker from the ’70s went for $212,500 in 2015.

Online bidding will begin in about a month and the live auction will be on March 18.
