This souvenir sheet issued by USPS on 22 September 2013, features a new version of the most famous error in the history of U.S. stamps: the Inverted Jenny, a 1918 misprint that mistakenly showed a biplane flying upside down. Reprinted with a $2 denomination to make them easily distinguishable from the 24-cent originals, theInverted Jennys on this sheet commemorate the many ways a single stamp can turn amoment in history upside down. The original engraved dies to produce the 1918 Inverted Jenny were used in the design to produce the new stamps.

Dear Reader, 
I am pleased to release October 2013 issue of Rainbow Stamp News. This issuecontains some new articles on unique subjects by distinguished philatelists. Virtual  philately is a new phenomenon of present time. Mr Naresh Agarwal writes in detail about its various aspects and benefits in his column.
