  • Beautiful Proof

    I collected coins as a child, but this is a bit different. I'm an unofficial MM collector and am glad I have this in my collection. It's a beautiful proof coin.

  • Marilyn Lover

    I bought this because I am a huge Marilyn fan. Upon inspection it is 1 ounce of silver and 1 side of the coin has a cheesy sticker on it. Not worth the 160.00 I paid for it so it's going back.
