Guessing at a category for this post!

I recently came across a copy of "POD Poster 103" from January 1963 for "Domestic postage rates, fees, and information" effective January 7, 1963, which marks the advent of the 5 cent letter rate in the U.S.

It is printed in blue, red and yellow. But on this copy, the red is inverted! Upright:


The same image, just rotated 180 degrees:


Lower left corner showing the POD imprint:


(I defined "upright" with the most colors correct and the fewest in error, which also coincided with the POD imprint being upright.)

Dimensions: 17"x22", folded into quarters.

No doubt rarer than the Dag Hammarskjold invert of a few months earlier!

Certainly rarer than the Dag Hammarskjold error. There is currently a full error sheet on eBay for $8.00. So this might be more valuable as well.

Can't get anymore sc*wed than the original finder. PMG did him dirty.

At least the St. Lawrence invert has a bit happier story.
