Muscat 1956 Green 1 1/2a 1 1/2d stamp with B.P.A BPA Expert Certificate

Recently I saw Green 1 1/2d Queen Victoria revenue stamp overprint with 1 1/2 Annas. This stamp might be genuine as it has has B.P.A Expert certificate but certificate don't have any address or phone # or any government registration id.

So not sure it's authenticated/genuine or just printed on piece of paper.!!

Now this Green Queen Victoria revenue stamp overprint stamp with BPA Expert Certificate was sold for $1225 from Slovakia by eBay seller "rrstampshop" with feedback of 6 (only 6) .!!! So buyer believed this Expert Certificate.

After looking all kind of forgery overprint stamps or Bogus (never exist) overprint stamps as well as forgery EXPERT certificate it's very hard to believe now a days in stamps collection.

Also we know how easy is to make or provide stamp EXPERT certificate. If you don't know or want to know then click following link

So how we know whether Green Queen Victoria revenue stamp is genuine or forgery ?

So how we know whether Green Queen Victoria revenue stamp was indeed overprint stamps ?

Not sure who buys this stamps even though stamp collection is declining or almost obsolete.!

Click following link to read and you decide.

To me it is a common practice to increase price of stamp by shill bidding  and than make "Second Offer" or by re-listing from different id so collector will try to buy it at lower price thinking they got a good deal.!!

So BEWARE of this kind of activity in Stamps as well as all other stamps.

Indian Philatelic - Gandhi Boycott British Goods Non-violence label

We all know how stamp collectors and dealers make money by creating some forgery which they claim it as rare or unique item.

Following Indian Philatelic Gandhi Boycott British Goods Non-violence is one of them.

My personal opinion is that India Gandhi Boycott British Goods Non-violence nothing but FORGERY or might not even exist(Bogus label) in 1930 or even  Gandhiji might not have even seen it. It's just some greedy people during that time might have taken advantage of this and issue couple of label which were legal to even use during that time.

And now India Gandhi Boycott British Goods Non-violence created as forgery by just printing it and putting in sunlight or dust or oil or water and are creating as rare unique label.

What ever you see in Stamp exhibit is not always genuine. And same is the case with whatever you read in Indian Philatelic Handbook or yearbook or blogs or website or stamp exhibit is not true.

It's all about make money.

Some dealer will make it, Some stamp collector will exhibit and some author will write about it.

Now a days stamp collection is not a hobby but a big SCAM or GAME to make money.

Want to learn how to play Philatelic GAME or SCAM collectors then click following link to read my blog post.

1) Philatelic GAME.!!
2) Philatelic Greed !!
3) Stamp Collecting FACTS.

In last 4 years I have seen large quantity for auction of India Gandhi Boycott British Goods Non-violence label. 

Recently I saw this India Gandhi Boycott British Goods Non-violence selling for $90.!!

Lot of money if you convert in Indian Rupees and some one can make living by selling this kind of label only.!!

In order to make money collectors and dealers will involved in making all kind of forgeries or even bogus special cancellation, stamps, FDC, philatelic material and all you can think will be forged.

Following are different ways to make money by selling stamps on Internet. (Of course is CHEATING!!)

1) Make money by selling SPECIMEN postcard 
2) Make money by making RUBBER stamp
3) Make money by selling TRIAL PROOF waste by stealing it or by art using Photoshop.
4) Make money by selling FORGERY stamps
5) Make money by selling FORGED special cancellation from different cities.
6) Make money by selling FORGERY stamps as GENUINE.
7) Make money by selling BOGUS - never exist special cancellation
8) Make money by selling LABELS - forgery or bogus
9) Make money by selling FAKE or BOGUS First Flight Cover FFC
10 ) Make money by OVERPRINTING stamps.!!

So now you have to decide what you are paying for what ?

But keep in mind what you see on eBay or any other auction house pricing is not correct as they don't pay after buying it in order to increase price and you might get second offer chance at little lower price.!!

Gandhi Stamp Exhibition - Do anyone collect Gandhi stamps and philatelic material ?

Recently I read blog post on "Rainbow Stamp Club" about Indian stamp exhibit winner at  PhilaKorea 2014 world stamp exhibition and I was surprised there are no Gandhi Stamp Exhibit winner.!!

My Congratulations to all 6 winners from India.


I am not sure whether there was any GANDHI stamp collection exhibit in  PhilaKorea 2014.

Not sure whether there is any interest in Gandhi stamps collection as no winner

Looking to past exhibits I can understand majority of the Gandhi stamp philatelic material is nothing but BOGUS or forgery so it does not make sense to participate in exhibition where philatelic judges now have enough information to look on the web and think about it before they decide to disqualify the entree.!

Still you will see Gandhi exhibit during some events or speeches because no one will  question about their collection as it is only to gain popularity.

In USA I don't even see any Gandhi stamp Exhibit (click following link to see) in Westpex 2014 one of the  biggest stamp exhibition even though there are high price Gandhi stamp seller on eBay are from San Francisco, Santa Clara, Los Altos or Sunnyvale.


So not sure what's going in Gandhi Stamp Collector.?

Gandhi Stamps collection is  DEAD or Collectors are afraid about their collection because of following BOGUS items in their collection which they proudly display one time.!!

Following are some of the BOGUS material you will see in past exhibition as well in  philatelic handbooks.

1) Rare Specimen stamps in   Leather folder

2)  India 1948 BOGUS First Day cover from various cities with Jai Hind Commemorative cancel or Special cancellation (Biggest Forgery in stamp collection).

My personal opinion (without digging Indian Government archives) about 1948 First day cover were only issued from New Delhi, Bombay, Calcutta and Madras. I am not sure about this also but as they are/were 4 major cities during that time.

All other to me looks BOGUS (never exist). Made by someone like me and you.

Poona, Simla, NagPur, Patna, Kanpur, Pondicherry, Allahabad, Shillong, etc.

Also I had seen from Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar, Indore, Bhopal, Varanasi, Hyderabad, Cochin etc.

3) 1969 Fiji, Luxembourg, Burma, Czech Republic Commemorative cancel or Special cancellation  (wide varieties available)


4) Gandhi SERVICE BOGUS overprint stamp and FORGED or BOGUS rubber stamp of Governor General. )Some of this have Expert Certificate.!!)

5) ERROR stamp and BOGUS Nicaragua FDC with overprint error stamp (does not make sense).

6) BOGUS FDC from Indian Embassy of Nepal.

There are lot more BOGUS philatelic material which I can go up to 200-300 or more.!!!

That's the reason we don't see Gandhi exhibit in stamp exhibition.!

My request to genuine collectors that need to start exhibiting without any forgery or BOGUS and let's show the world that Gandhi stamp collection is not DEAD!

Also let's EXPOSE all BOGUS and FORGERY and make it proud of our self.
