Unique inverted Jenny locket valued at $300,000 at HR Harmer

The unique inverted Jenny locket was made by Colonel Green for his wife Mabel

A unique inverted Jenny stamp housed in a locket could make $250,000-300,000 at HR Harmer in Los Angeles on May 17.

Colonel Ned Green, who was the first to break up the initial sheet of Jennys into blocks and singles for sale, made it for his wife Mabel - a former prostitute whomhe married after the death of his mother Hetty (aka the Witch of Wall Street).

Another inverted Jenny is expected to break the auction record for the issue when it crosses the block at Spink on May 21.
