June 2, I bought several inverted Jenny sheet of 6 $2 stamps for postage
My wife mails several items of instructional materiel weekly and the postage is usually 2 to 6 dollars each.

I bought 5 packages of the sheets and told my wife in the car that there is a possibility that the "right side up' Jenny could be in the these packages. No luck. She said how many more does the post office have. I said they told me no one asks for them and they had not sold any of them in the past 2 years. She said they had 168 packages left.
My wife said you are a stamp collector just think of the thrill of looking for that"special". We can just use them for postage if you do not find one. Well After I opened the 5th package there was the "right side up" Jenny. Also its a beautiful stamp and I am thrilled.

you believe it would be wise to sell or wait until the end of the month when all are pulled from the POs

They are not being pulled from sale. That announcement was a mistake. They will continue to sell until sold out.

I reg my find with the USPS today. I asked her how many has been found and she said mine find would be the #32 that has reg with them. She does not know how many were found. Also she said my find was one of the very few finds that was bought at a post office.
