Minnie Pearl was born as Sarah Colley in 1912 and didn't use the 'stage' name Minnie Pearl until 1939. The $1.98 price tag on her hat was added much later on. Any early photo of her as a young woman would not have had it at all. There is a story, fun to relate but not verified, that the first appearance with the price tag on her hat was an oversight and accident. However it created so much comment and interest in the next few days that she decided to keep it. This story may or may not be true, but if not true her idea to add it to her wardrobe was simply brilliant. She maintained it as a part of her persona until her death in the 1990's.

From the song 'Minnie Pearl' "Went out to the driveway to get the paper, The sun was shining bright, But then a dark cloud come over, Minnie Pearl had died last night..."

You're right! I did not notice her hat was missing the price tag. No one should interfere with Minnie's persona - it's a sin!

I wondered too about the tag. My guess..the print was processed in a lab up north by a yankee who might have dodged the tag out not knowing it was part of MP's image.
