Marilyn Monroe Mausoleum Marker Up For Grabs

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.
