From what I understand, Roy Smeck put his name on anything he could, so I kinda doubt there's much added value to skin head with his name on it. I got one off a Weymann Keystone 150 that I took apart for cleaning and light repair without bothering to play it. Now that I have all the parts (along with a new Remo head) I'm ready to reassemble it. Am I missing anything special not using Roy Smeck head?

No. A signature on a banjo head won't add anything to the sound. Unless you prefer the sound of the skin head to the plastic one then you are OK with the Remo head.

I actually have a Roy Smeck skin head new in the box. (attached).
When they return to popularity I'll be ready!
