Anything associated with singer Bessie Smith is extremely rare and desirable. While this example is a restrike from the 1950's, it represents the oldest image of Smith we have ever handled and is still deserving of a special place in even the most advanced collection! The stamp on the back is from a collection that was curated in the 1960's-1970's but the image itself predates the stamp.
