Dumping rarity prices

It's being reported that someone had mailed an absentee ballot using an "Inverted Jenny" stamp. Since the envelop didn't have a return address, the vote is invalidated and the enveloped is stored in a sealed box, along with other invalid ballots, until the year 2008, when the government will take possession of the stamp (along with the ballots, envelopes, and regular 37c (or is it 39 already?) useless stamps).

Now, it is said there are just about a hundred of those stamps in existence, and apparently collectors are constantly trying to get their hands on one of those. So, if it is now believed there's one more stamp going to be available in 2008, the current price for such a "Jenny" should get down, and an interested party can get one... cheaper!
