Photo detail

A reissue of two versions of the famous Inverted Jenny postage stamp is shown. The original 1918 stamp was printed with the upside-down bi-plane by mistake. The mistake was reissued by the USPS along with a limited run of corrected stamps in 2013 as a way to bring more people into stamp collecting.
