The Inverted Jenny was a famously misprinted stamp with the airmail biplane printed upside down. Although technically, since the plane was printed first, it is actually the border that is upside down. To find our Inverted Jenny, locate another airplane in San Jose that is a little "off-kilter". It has it's own local history of aeronautical interest.

From the airplane's uppermost wing, locate the nearest telephone pole which stands among a group of trees. All of the trees are the same species, except one. It is at the base of that tree that you will find the Inverted Jenny.

NOTE: Blue and Red markers are recommended.
