Inverts Make for Favorite Philatelic Flips
The site points out, "Stamp errors in general and inversions in particular have been a fascination for collectors since the hobby began and continues to be so today."
It then goes on to list some famous and not-so-famous inverts. These include....
~ The Western Australia 1854-55 4d blue inversion error (inaccurately described as the 'Inverted Swan', when actually it is the frame around Swan which is inverted).
~ The 1854 inverted Queen Victoria from India.
~ Belgium's Inverted Dendermonde (or Termonde in French) which shows one of the town's buildings upside down.
~ 1920 Jamaican 1 shilling which is shown above.
