A mystery over 60 years in the making 

In 1955, a block of four inverted Jenny stamps was stolen from a Virginia stamp show. By the 1980s, two had been recovered, but the mystery still intrigued collectors.

In 2014, Mystic’s President Don Sundman offered a $100,000 reward for the remaining two missing stamps to be returned. One has recently been discovered in a collection from Ireland and turned over to the American Philatelic Research Library.
