     Pictured above is the famous “Jenny” stamp, named for the Curtis Jenny airplane depicted in the center.  A run of “error” stamps was accidentally produced showing the airplane upside down, some of which made it into the public domain before the mistake was caught.  An “Inverted Jenny”, as these error stamps have come to be known, are today worth thousands of dollars.
