7.- History of the 24c Inverted Jenny postage stamp USA C3a.
The Inverted Jenny (also known as an Upside Down Jenny or Jenny Invert) is a United States postage stamp first issued on May 10 1918 in which the image of the Curtiss JN-4 airplane in the center of the design was accidentally printed upside-down; it is probably the most famous error in American philately. Only one pane of 100 of the invert stamps was ever found, making this error one of the most prized in all philately; an inverted Jenny was sold at a Robert A. Siegel auction in November 2007 for US $977,500.

9.- Printing Postage Stamps
Want to know how stamps are printed? This video was created in 1993 for the Postal Museum's Stamps and Stories gallery. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) shut down its 111 years of printing postage stamps on June 10, 2005. U.S. stamps are now all printed by private contractors
10.- Now that's a stamp album!
Would the printer responsible for this 1892 stamp album recognise the computer generated loose- leaf flexible system albums of today? My guess is that he would marvel at the ease in which a country- dedicated album page could be created but he would still find the finished result a little bland.
The outer cover of this lovely old album produced by the Schwaneberger firm of Leipzig belies its contents. The black, red, blue & gold binder showing ships, trains & pyramids hints at a rather junior theme, but once opened that first impression is instantly dispelled as each album page is a work of true craftsmanship.
Every country, state or colony has a heading page with a map, the first stamp page is topped with an engraved portrait of the national leader plus a coat of arms, flag or other symbol, further down we see spaces for issued stamps often with helpful illustrations.
