Years ago, stamp collections were popular among children and adults, but
in some corners of the world, the hobby is making a big comeback. In this
video, you’ll hear the riveting stories of the world’s rare
stamps and you’ll also learn about the lives of their sometimes
eccentric collectors. The inverted Jenny, for instance, is a stamp printed
to honor a World War I era biplane. The stamp was accidentally printed
upside-down, making a recently discovered sheet worth millions.
