Band Names Itself "Jenny Invert"

Music reporter Samantha Anne Carrillo writes on the website,"Naming your band after a famous postage error is a pretty bold, slightly geeky and charming move. The Inverted Jenny, or Jenny Invert, depicts the GN-14 airplane, and its border was printed upside down. Only one sheet of misprints—that's 100 stamps—made its way into the world of American philately, the study and practice of stamp collecting. It's one of the most valuable mistakes in U.S. postal history for collectors."

According to Carrillo, "Jenny Invert's Sam Miller is one of those mail ephemera enthusiasts. He and his brother Will were regular childhood patrons of long-shuttered local emporium Stamp World but never scored one of the coveted snafus"

Miller is quoted as saying, “If I had one, I'd be rich.”
