Every so often, a 1918 “Inverted Jenny” stamp flies onto the auction market, quickening collectors’ pulses. The U.S. Postal Service produced only 100 examples of the 24-cent stamp in which, as a result of a printing error, a Curtiss biplane flies upside down. Back in 2007, one sold at auction for almost $1m.

One of these is coming up soon, November 29 I think. It's selling through Robert S Siegel for $450,000. Not bad considering how much other example have made.
