These special awards are quite rare; this is only the second I have owned in 50 years.  Condition is very good; photo has some emulsion excess in lower left corner only visible in oblique light.  Margaret Bourke-White's signature is in the lower right corner of the photo.  Even the backing cardboard is original.(Many of these awards have been altered to include replaced photos but not this one).
