The “Rolls-Royce” of rare stamps

1918 24-cent stamp

A New York man paid a whopping $825,000 for one of the most prominently flawed stamps in U.S. history.

The rare 1918 24-cent stamp shows an upside-down Curtis JN-4 biplane known as Jenny, a World War I training aircraft that became an airmail plane.

The mint condition red, white and blue stamp is said to be one of the finest known existing stamps from the original sheet of 100 misprints.

Randy Shoemaker, founder of Professional Stamp Experts, refers to this rare stamp as Rolls Royce of all stamps.
