Unpublished Marilyn Monroe Pics Bought at Garage Sale for 2 Bucks

Back in the 1980′s, Anton Fury purchased an envelope of negatives at a New Jersey garage sale. “I thought it was just some chick in a bikini,” Fury explained to the New York Post.

Upon closer inspection, Fury realized it was two chicks in bikinis — namely, Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield. The pictures are estimated to be from 1950. Monroe would have been just 24 years old.

Fury is currently working with Los Angeles art dealer David Streets in Los Angeles to learn as much as they can about the photos — including who the photographer might be. Fury would like to sell the images, but copyright law is an issue, as someone with legal claims to the photos might come forward.

CNN has a slideshow of the photos Fury has made public.
