In 1918 Congress authorized the U.S. Postal Service to print 24 cent Air
Mail stamps. One of the first stamps was the Jenny airmail: a red frame
surrounding a blue plane.
Two color stamps meant that the stamps had to be
printed once for each color. The Jenny had a red plate (the frame) and
a blue plate (the plane).
One single sheet had the airplane printed upside down. The tiny error
that produced the Inverted Jenny may have been made when a printer simply
handled one of the sheets to check for ink quality and then laid it onto
the stack of other sheets upside-down in relation to the rest of the stack.
That single sheet of Inverted Jenny's is the Holy Grail of stamps, the
Mona Lisa of collecting. A single inverted Jenny is worth roughly $170,000.
