Here's something you don't see everyday. A Pentagon ID card issued to Marilyn Monroe during her trip to Korea which lists the Hollywood icons name as Norma Jeane DiMaggio.

Monroe visited Korea 62 years ago this month with husband Joe DiMaggio and it is very rare to encounter anything which lists Monroe's real name, let alone her married name. The card was put up for auction at Bonhams in 2008 where it sold for a whopping $57,000. An interesting piece of pop culture history!
