I've seen many inverted precancels, but none on a single or block of 1925 two cents Norse American Centennial stamps.

Just wondering if this is fairly scarce....or valuable?

Interesting. Added value ... probably minimal.

Agreed, minimal value, most precancel collectors would prefer a non-invert on a handstamp like this.

thanks folks, I know inverted precancels are a dime a dozen (or maybe fifteen cents, max :-)

But this block looks cool, especially as it's a plate-number block. I probably have close to a hundred inverted precancel singles, out of maybe 400 or 500 right-side-up precancels. Usually not given a second glance, I noticed this one in a cheap remainder online-auction lot where I already got some cool odd-ball Cinderella-type items.

I would love to see an inverted precancel on a Transportation Coil. I do not recall ever hearing about one, let alone seeing one!

This thread reminds me of a question I still have not found the answer for. I know that Bureaus are normally never inverted, only the three known examples (see my recent thread here). But what about the "reading up"... I think I saw (without looking at them longer) the "reading up" also happened for Bureaus in the later years - probably not correct? So is "reading up" like "inverted" and as such not existing for later Bureaus at all?

I don't have any here right now, but in this sale at the bottom right there are two examples of "reading up", for me it's difficult to decide the type in a scan.

On horizontal formatted definitive stamps and coils the bureau precancels switched from all reading DOWN orientation (with the 3 errors/exceptions that can have BOTH) to all UP on the Liberty series and others.
The Washington DC and Louisville KY in this scan are UP PSS-71. There are only 3 bureau precancel orientation errors.

thank you, interesting that to a certain point in time they thought that reading up would read better :). So that was from Liberty on then?

I am actually not sure, I don't have the references handy but I think - yes to all the above.
