Summary

This stamp appeared in the April 8, 1978 issue of Stamps Magazine, in an advertisement from Lambert Gerber showing three Inverted "Jenny's". The advertisement showed Positions 3 and 4 with tops reperfed, and an unidentified position with straight edge at top. This was a photographic "improvement" on Gerber's part-the stamps were never actually reperfed but were shown as though they were.

Editor's note: This stamp has been described in most auction and private treaty listings as full original gum which is lightly hinged. The opinions of most signers at the Philatelic Foundation is that the gum has been altered in some way. PF certificate 106461 certificate states it is "part o.g."
