Trains, Inverted Planes and a Lifetime of Stamps
In 1976, Hecht switched to being a full time stamp dealer specializing in Canal Zone, U.N. and train stamps as well as those from the United States and worldwide.
In the article, Hecht shares a story about the "Inverted Jenny" that got away.
According to Lynch, "About 12 years ago while helping one client, Hecht was able to find one of those stamps for $62,000, which he says was a good price. The client, however, decided last minute not to close the deal. Today Hecht says that the stamp would sell for a quarter of a million dollars, minimum."
