New York’s Siegel Auction Galleries has unveiled its new website detailing the Inverted Jenny at invertedjenny.com.
With extensive and detailed sections exploring the stamp’s history; production; discovery; sale records; and biographies, the website offers virtually all known research on the famed Inverted Jenny (Scott #C3a) in an easily accessible manner.
One of the more interactive examples of the website is its “Sale Records” page, which is a virtual reconstruction of the original sheet of 100 Inverted Jenny stamps. It shows each position using the most current photograph. Because several Jenny Inverts have not been seen for many years (and another two have never been photographed, to the best of Siegel’s knowledge), there are a number of black blank spaces. By clicking one of the known examples, however, you will be provided with a catalogue of information, including a summary, previous owners, certifications, transactions, graphs of realization and photos. Position 76, for example, details the long-lost stolen Jenny Invert that was recently recovered by Spink USA in April.
