          History Of The Inverted Jenny Stamp

"When a 24-cent stamp debuted on May 14, 1918, to commemorate the start of the first regularly scheduled airmail service, collectors knew it had been rushed into production, and would be printed in two colors, which meant that rare and valuable errors might slip into circulation. Even so, William T. Robey of Washington, D. C., was flabbergasted to discover a sheet of 100 stamps mistakenly showing the Curtiss JN-4H, the biplane known as the ‘Jenny’, upside down. ‘The clerk reached down under the counter and brought forth a full sheet,’ Robey recounted 20 years later, ‘and my heart stood still.’ He would soon learn that he had purchased the only sheet of erroneous stamps to fall into public hands.

Airmail service began the next day between Washington, Philadelphia, and New York, thanks to pioneering aviators like Reuben H. Fleet (Shown on the front of the stamp sheet). Over time, the Inverted Jenny sheet was broken up and sold, creating some of the most coveted collectibles in the world.

Today, two Inverted Jenny stamps soar among the treasures at the Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum in Washington, D. C. With the opening of the William H. Gross Stamp Gallery in 2013—the museum’s 20th anniversary—visitors will also see a loaned block of four Inverted Jennys, one of only a handful in existence, in a setting that honors the innumerable ways one stamp can turn a moment in history upside down.”

MK can come and admire my reprints of the Inverted Jenny anytime he wants! Just stamp him and Airmail him my way! (Just be sure you put a note on him…”handle with care”!)

Fascinating history Miss mkmohair 😊

For Jilly (like you need more TBV gifs, right?) and anybody else who likes MK in TBV.

Frank Hunter gives the student advice on his golf swing in The Browning Version, 1985.

With him as an instructor, any of us could become a member of the LPGA in a matter of weeks. I personally like how he pushes the kid’s head down so very gently in gif number five.

My, my my. Just look at that schwing {:Ob~

{This is only the beginning….}

Thank you vagabondtrousers, beautifully done :o) I see you noticed the world is thirsty for TBV and Frank Hunter gifs. Especially that swing… Oh my… ;o)

Oh this is good :o)

Oh this is good :o)

Something a little ‘ooh err’ about MK looking like my school English teacher… ;o)

vagabondtrousers said: Your school English teacher looked like that?! I grew up in the wrong country!

I was watching Brimstone and Treacle this evening and yet again, I marvelled at the fluffy hair… The 1970s, good or bad for MK?
(Main pic source: Getty Images)

Thought with all the talk lately about The Man’s crazy ‘70’s hair…this posting of Jilly’s needed to be reblogged.
Yes, today we can look back on this and say…oh, that was NOT his best look (especially given his current lusciousness). But during THAT time…he would have been so hot that if you got too close you would have gone up in flames!

The fashion for men these days seems to be NO HAIR  which might be why some sisters of the fandom find  Mr.K’s 70’s hair unappealing, my era though so I’m more than happy with it.

I freely admit that when I first saw photos of MK from the 70s I laughed at his hair. I was just a wee girl in the 70s, so didn’t really pay much attention to men’s hairstyles back then. Alas, as a child of the 80s, I don’t mind crazy hair so much, if it was multi-colored and or spiky, LOL; however, you can’t hide the handsome face, even under all that hair. There’s no denying that his beauty had yet to fully “ripen” (as Jilly once observed) until about the mid-80s. Funnily enough, it coincided with him cutting his hair to a more manageable length.
I much prefer men with too much hair rather than none. Can’t say I appreciate the current fashion trend of no-hair. It’s one thing if a man is bald/balding naturally as there’s really not much worse than a bad “rug”, but to shave one’s head as a slave to fashion? Not so much.

"Child of the 80s"? Shut up with your bragging, woman!

I was a teenager/young adult in the 70’s, so the first time I saw a pic of MK with the crazy hair I thought- “yep, it was the 70’s alright, still a fine lookin’ man!”.

Who’s bragging, AA? Don’t you realize that makes me OLD to most of the population of Tumblr?! LOL :OD
Trust me, I ain’t bragging. 

My motto is “old ain’t dead”! 😊

…I go away for one day lol. 

Anyone else notice how MK’s hair during most of the 1970s seemed to have a life of its own? Exhibit A - the ‘wake up’ scene in Brimstone & Treacle. I didn’t know hair could actually do that. 

But he does seem to be back in charge of his follicles by No Man’s Land (phew). 

cmee57 - you win for the most entertaining motto I’ve heard tonight  :o)
