One story this week captured my imagination. One of the most rare, sought-after stamps by philatelists was put on an absentee ballot (with no name, rendering the vote invalid), and sealed in a Florida ballot box that, by law, must not be opened.
The stamp is the inverted “Jenny.” It’s worth from $200,000 to $500,000. There are only 100 known in existence. So this little story will now be one of those unanswered mysteries–the type that are a lot more fun as long as they are unanswered.
It reminds me of some other fun “unanswered mysteries,” like the missing robotic head of Phillip K. Dick.
I can’t think of any others at the moment. Can you?
