The stamps on the verso of this photograph have been identified as M21 and M23 in Steven Manford’s book, Behind the photo: the stamps of Man Ray (2009). According to Manford, M21 is a lifetime stamp used from 1940 to 1951, this “address stamp appears on nearly all photographs made and printed in the forties” and M23 is a lifetime stamp used from 1940 to 1951 (p. 27).
