Several years ago I was wandering around in a local liquor store (for investigative purposes, not that I would ever shop at one of those places!) and noticed something unusual. All bottles of Kessler blended whiskey on the shelf offered a commemorative belt buckle as a bonus with the purchase of a bottle, and there was something "off" about the design on the buckle. I saw that the design included an embossed figure of the state of Tennessee on each buckle, and that the state was upside down in the design.
Knowing that minting errors in coins and stamps often made those mistakes very valuable, I bought several bottles of Kessler ("Smooth as Silk!") in order to acquire those belt buckles. I smiled, knowing I had just made my fortune. The mistake would be found, publicity would surround the minting error, and before long I'd be sitting on a goldmine of screwed up belt buckles from a cheap bourbon company.
No one seemed to notice or care, and my gold mine of an investment fell through. I was stuck with several bottles of Kessler. Smooth as silk. Still have the belt buckles in a box, somewhere, if anyone's interested...
I was reminded of that little episode when I read this story today. Seems someone made a clerical error when minting the new Papal medals for the Vatican. Of all words for them to misspell, it's hard to believe they screwed up the word "Jesus".
As soon as the mistake was found the Vatican withdrew the remaining 6,000 medals from sale. But not before four of the medals had been purchased. Those four medals are now rumored to be very valuable because of the minting error.
A witty tweeter said he blamed the "Lesuits" for the mistake.
