    No, but I'm thinking about it, although I'm not an active stamp collector.
    Will these 1st day cancellation covers be worth more in the long run than the regular six stamp uncancelled sheets? image
    I never thought that growing old would happen so fast.

    The mint sheets will be worth more than the covers.

    My local Post Office sold their entire shipment to (1) guy who says he has a Pawn Shop in China and will get $100 a sheet for them. image

    I got none. image

    I passed, but I guess I should have.

    You can buy them on eBay from the USPS. 100 sheets are not inverted and mixed into the regular envelopes. Can't see in the packing so everyone gets a fair shot.

    PS. Don't buy the covers, unless you want to lose money.

    So, has anyone got the right side up sheets yet?

    If so what are they selling for?

    I got 4 sets from The Post Office today but all are upside down image

    I heard that three were found. No idea what they will go for. I purchased four sheets today; all are inverts. I'll use them for postage!

    according to Yahoo!, 4 are public: Article
  • Question concerning the USPS offering of packs of 6 $2 Jenny Stamps in sealed packets.....

    There is some special notification in each of the 100 New Error packets consisting of 6 $2 Jenny stamps that are right side Up. Wouldn't the weight of each pack be approx. the same except for a pack containing a special notice? This way, you may know if you have a sealed pack with no errors or you have a slightly heavier pack that contains the 6 error stamps with an enclosed notice. Comments.... I have several packs but have kept them sealed thinking that once the stamps are sold out, unopened packs will rise in value. Comments. A respected stamp dealer here in Texas told me yesterday that the Kansas City USPS Warehouse had "No More" packs of Jenny Stamps to send out to USPS P.O.s that were requesting more stamps. Interesting!!!!

    Unless the notification is printed on the existing protective Card........Is it verified that a notice does indeed acompany "Correct Errors" ?

  • An official with USPS called me back today and said that there is a small piece of paper in the error packs that instructs winner to call and request a COA.

    I saw one of the non-inverted $2 Jenny block of 6 last week at a coin show in Orlando-the dealer set up next to had the block in his case ...

    I went to my local PO, and they did not have any $2 Jenny's in stock ... so I ordered 20 sheets from the PO online- they come in tomorrow ...

    I went to get some of these sheets at my local P O. They had some but the seal looks funny. Looked like someone maybe took
    a peek and resealed somehow.

    Am I just paranoid?

    Still only (4) of these accounted for?

  • I've bought a few, actually. As my wife deals in the mail, we've used nearly everyone by this time of writing. Got some on return for my own collection.

    I see where an "upright invert" recently sold for around $50,000. That's double the original dealers' asking price of $25K.

    They were fun.
