The negative and copyright image is auctioned for £4,250. It was believed that five to eight thousand pounds would be offered for them.
Auctioneer Andrew Aldridge said he was pleased with the result.
“The copyrighted auction is unique in its own right,” said Aldridge, owner of Henry Aldridge & Sons in Wiltshire, Davis.
In 1946, Norma Jean Baker was even working in a factory when an army photographer saw her and said she could become a model.
