A Hurrell pic, now with a snipe

At the start of the year, I came across this Carole Lombard photo, Paramount p1202-1345, but knew little about it otherwise (https://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/965465.html). I soon learned it was shot by George Hurrell, and that the "1345" number indicated it was from 1936.

Now I know a bit more. Its snipe has been discovered:

We see the Newspaper Enterprise Association syndicate received it on April 30, 1936. Now, let's enlarge the snipe:

In this publicity still for "The Princess Comes Across," though not directly from the film, we learn Lombard gardens, exercises and plays tennis -- yep, that's the Carole we know. This pic is a vintage 8" x 10" in fine condition.

You can buy it straight up for $149.99 or make an offer. Get all the particulars at https://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-Gorgeous-Vintage-Portrait-Photo-1936/312799438190?hash=item48d44ca56e:g:Bs8AAOSwmHhdWx~e.
