Probably the most famous collectible stamp ever minted,
this 1918 bit of postage is worth at least $600,000 dollars
if you happen to have one.  Known as the "Inverted Jenny,"
the plane was mistakenly printed upside down.  Only a single
sheet of 100 made it into circulation.  Later this year the Post
Office will issue a souvenir sheet of six for actual use.  But it
will be a $2 stamp.  Shoot.
