Moderate stains are along the edges of the rolled calendar, which contains no advertising. The Monroe photo is unaffected except for a small part of the gold frame and a miniscule spot in the lower right corner. The calendar pages are intact. Monroe was only 22 when this photo was taken in 1949. Financially desperate at the time, she was paid only $50 for this pose on red velvet. Winning Bid $403.
