1918 Twenty Four Cent Inverted Jenny The Finest of the Five Recorded Mint N. H. Copies

1001 1001

★★ ✦

#C3a, 24c Carmine rose and blue, Center Inverted, pos. 77, 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 immaculate original gum which is never hinged,light pencil number "77" at bottom right as marked by Eugene Klein on all positions on the sheet of 100, choice very fine; the highest graded mint never hinged example; 2014 P.F. Certificate (VF-XF 85; SSV $1,000,000.00 for VF 80). The 1918 Twenty Four Cent Inverted Jenny is one of the most recognized and desired 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 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 at least six examples whose whereabouts are unknown and possibly lost to philately. A great many of the known 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 straight edges. . This example from the J.E. Safra holding, which he acquired in a 2 February, 1994 Christie's auction of the "Westport" collection for $173,000.00, is the finest of the mere five mint never hinged copies of the 24c Jenny with inverted center recorded, the most famous and widely recognized stamp in philately. It has previously graced the collections of Colonel Edward H.R. Green, Frederick H. Douglas of Rumson, N.J., who sold it through John A. Fox at auction on 30 July, 1959 for $6,100.00 to Raymond H. Weill acting as agent for Dr. J.A. Graves. It was next offered publicly at the 1982 Siegel Rarities of the world auction, and sold again to Weill acting as agent for "Westport." It realized $198,000.00 a then record price for a single United States stamp. The most recent appearance of a mint n.h. copy was the Robert A. Siegel sale of the Beverly Hills Collection in October, 2013. That copy, which was graded VF 80 by both the P.F. and P.S.E. hammered for $500,000.00.(photo)

STAMPS ARE SO GRADED EITHER BY REASON OF GENERAL APPEARANCE OF IMPERFECT CENTERING OR A FAULT.

At all times any faults such as a crease, tear, thin spot, etc. will be specifically described. In collection lots and balances the condition described is meant to indicate the overall average to be found. Examples above and below the condition listed can be expected. Typically we do not describe minor perforation separations on blocks or sheets as these are quite normal and are not grounds for their return. In regard to covers, torn or partially missing black flaps, light filing folds and small edge tears, unless they affect the adhesive or markings, are not justification for the return of a lot.

ESTIMATES If an Estimated cash value is given, it is shown in the descriptions with the abbreviation “Est.” Estimates, which are in United States dollars, are used when a lot is large or when it is not listed in the standard catalogs. Our estimates are typically conservative and the lots invariably realize in the estimate ranges or higher.

In the event of any dispute between bidders, SPINK may, at its sole discretion, immediately put the lot up for sale again. SPINK’S decision shall be final and binding upon all bidders. A buyer’s premium equal to 20% of the successful bid price of each lot up to and including $2,000.00 and 15% of the excess bid price will be added to each invoice and is payable by the buyer as part of the total purchase price. All bids are to be per lot as numbered in this catalog. SPINK reserves the right to group two or more lots together and to withdraw, prior to call for bids, any lot(s) from the sale. Bids will be accepted in whole dollar amounts only, and SPINK reserves the right to reject any bid or advance the bidding at its discretion.

If he/she does so, he/she must pay both the seller’s commission and buyer’s premium. SPINK may have made advances and loans available to certain consignors and bidders in the sale.

will be responsible for total purchase price in the event of loss. SPINK cannot be and is not responsible for the loss of any merchandise shipped outside the United States and therefore insurance on any items to be shipped outside the United States is solely the responsibility of the buyer. It is also the responsibility of the buyer to provide adequate insurance coverage for the items once they are in his/her possession. Risk of loss shall be borne by the buyer following shipment of the items and SPINK assumes no liability for merchandise lost, stolen or damaged while in the possession of a party to whom merchandise has been shipped. For international shipments, all duties/taxes/fees are the sole responsibility of the buyer. In the event a successful bidder fails to pay the charges due, SPINK reserves the right to resell the merchandise and the buyer agrees to pay for the reasonable cost of such a sale including a 10% seller’s commission, and also to pay any difference between the resale price and the winning price of his/her previously successful bid. SPINK reserves the right to require payment in full before delivery of the merchandise to the buyer. Bidder personally guarantees payment, and if a corporation, an officer or principal in the corporation agrees to personally guarantee payment. Title to any purchased items remains with SPINK until all invoices are paid in full. SPINK reserves the right to await clearance of any check used for payment before delivery of any item and a $25.00 charge will be applied for any check that fails to clear. SPINK reserves the right to refuse to honor or reject any bid which, in its opinion, is not submitted in good faith, or, as the case dictates, is not supported by satisfactory references, as SPINK in its sole discretion shall determine. SPINK further reserves the right to ban any bidder from participation in its sales for any reason deemed appropriate in its sole discretion. No minors may participate in any SPINK sales. Bids will be executed for mail bidders at one advance over the next highest bid in competition with floor and/or internet bidders, until the maximum bid is executed for the mail bidder, or until the lot is sold. No buy or unlimited bids will be accepted. No additional commission (except for the buyer’s premium) is charged for executing mail bids. SPINK cannot and does not assume any responsibility for errors made in the amount bid or lot numbers listed, so check your bid sheet and online submission carefully.

SPINK may reopen the bidding on a lot under the following circumstances: (a) SPINK has failed to execute correctly a mail bid; (b) A party purchasing the lot on the floor has done so in error; (c) Where a protest is made after the hammer has fallen but before bidding has commenced on the next lot; (d) Where the auctioneer has determined that he/she has overlooked a party still bidding on the lot but before the calling of the next lot; and (e) At the discretion of the auctioneer. In the event of a dispute, the auctioneer’s decision shall be final.
