101 oggraded C3a image#C3a, 24c Carmine rose and blue, Center Inverted, pos. 39, an extraordinarily choice and exceptionally fresh mint example of this coveted and storied error rarity, wonderfully well centered amid large margins, beautiful rich colors on crisp clean paper, while full and even perforations all around further enhance its considerable eye-appeal, plus its reverse reveals full original gum which is quite lightly hinged, light pencil number "39" at bottom right as marked by Eugene Klein on all positions on the sheet of 100, choice very fine; one of the highest graded mint examples; 1970 PF certificate #33198 (not present) and 2019 PF certificate (VF-XF 85). The 1918 Twenty Four Cent Inverted Jenny is one of the most recognized and desirable rarities in all of philately. Its legendary status began the moment the stamp was issued in May, 1918, when William T. Robey purchased the entire error sheet of 100 at the New York Avenue Post Office window in Washington D.C. - May 14th - just one day after the stamp was issued. Within one week Robey had sold the sheet for $15,000.00 to the well-known Philadelphia stamp dealer Eugene Klein (an impressive return on his initial $24.00 investment). Shortly thereafter Mr. Klein sold the sheet to the renowned, yet eccentric collector, Col. Edward H.R. Green for $20,000.00. Col. Green asked Klein to break up the sheet for him into singles and blocks, then instructed him to sell all but the few key position blocks. What is puzzling is how, given the immediate attention created by a spectacular new error, so many of the stamps from the sheet have been poorly handled and stored over the years. In fact, there are still examples whose whereabouts are unknown and which may be lost to philately. A great many of the copies have varying degrees of faults and some even have lost all of their original gum. Improper hinging has caused a significant number of the faults, often thinning or creasing the stamps and nineteen have or had straight edges, one was even sucked up in a vacuum cleaner. This example from the exceptional Gross collection, which last sold publicly on the instructions of Mr. Norman Newman in a 27 September, 1995 Christie's auction $135,000.00 hammer, which was full Scott catalog value at the time (the current Scott catalog value is $450,000.00 for VF) is among the finest singles copies of the 24c Jenny with inverted center extant, the most famous and widely recognized stamp in philately. It has previously graced the collections of Colonel Edward H.R. Green, J.K. Storrow, Henry B. Close and several anonymous collectors. It has also been handled by such noteworthy professionals as Eugene Klein, Raymond H. Weill, Daniel F. Kelleher and Irwin Weinberg. (Image)
