    The United States issued a stamp honoring Hammarskjold, however one sheet went in backwards for the second color resulting in a rare sheet of inverted stamps. Stamp collector Leonard Sherman purchased the sheet for $2 at the post office, when he announced the find, the government decided to screw him and purposely printed millions of the stamp error.
    It was reported that he was a closet gay.
