不在者投票の封筒に超レア切手

フロリダ州ブロワード郡の選挙管理委員会に届いた不在者投票の封筒に、見慣れぬ古そうな切手が。昔集めていたというスタッフに見せてみると、興奮して叫びました。“It's the Inverted Jenney!!”

マニアなら知らぬ者はいないという「逆さのジェニー」。

A sheet containing a hundred stamps was printed in error with the biplane upside down. It was sold by mistake in 1918 and collectors have been chasing the Inverted Jenny ever since.
「図柄の複葉機がプリントミスで逆さになった切手が、100枚入りのシート1枚分だけ印刷された。それが1918年に手違いで販売され、以来マニアのお宝となっている。(ちなみにジェニーは戦闘機の愛称)」

去年、未使用品が52万5,000ドル(約6,200万円)で売れたとか。

この切手には消印が押されてしまったものの、状態次第で20万ドル(約2,400万円)の価値も見込めるとのこと。

ただし、うさんくさい面もあり、本物かどうかは不明です。
The envelope contained no clue to the identity of the voter.
「封筒には投票者の身元を示す情報が何も含まれていなかった(投票も無効)」

気をそらして開票作業を妨害したかったのかも。

小学校時代は切手ブームでしたが、「逆さのジェニー」は覚えがありません。

切手集めのだいご味は友だちとの交換。お気に入り5枚を出して手に入れた、あのあやしげなツタンカーメンの切手は、どこへいったのでしょう?

(後で事情を知りましたが、ブータンや太平洋の島国など、収集家向けのヘンテコな切手を出して外貨を稼いでいる国もあります)

今日のワンポイント
cancel

「(切手)に消印を押す」
The stamp was canceled.
「その切手には消印が押されていた」

以前 ヨーロッパやアメリカの ビジネスフレンドから 送られた来ました、 カリブ諸国発行の 切手(ディズニー・スヌーピー・ティディベア etc) まだまだ Mモンロー ダイアナ妃。
思い出した オードリヘプバーンの シャレードも 確か レアもの切手をめぐってではなかったかと。 我が家のコオリにも古銭や古い切手があったはずだが!

テンポウさん、こんにちは。そういう外貨目当てミエミエの切手でも子供は大喜びです。私もどっかの国が発行した鉄でできた切手を見せびらかしたものです。未チェックの宝クジから古銭、古切手までテンポウさんのお宅は宝の山ですね!

僕の小学校のころにも切手収集が大流行しました。古銭も少し集めてました。
たしか、今も実家にあると思います。
子供のころは200円くらいの価値の切手でも大切な宝物でした。(笑)

イルカちゃん、はじめまして。わかる!わかります。1枚千円なんてものは国宝級の扱いを受けました。新発売の切手も、大人はバラでなくシートで買うのが基本と聞いて驚がくしたものです。私もブーム再燃に備えて実家で探してみます。
