QV India used aboard - Queen Victoria Zanzibar stamp

In my previous blog post I wrote about 99 used covers from India with QV stamps or Queen Victoria stamps, KG stamps or King George stamps for $23.!!

Yes $23 for 99 covers from British India with QV stamps or King George Stamps.!!


Now if you see following auction were "ashokmehta1955" is selling India used abroad  stamp of QV in Zanzibar for $540.!!!

Look at the difference in price. $540 for two stamp on piece of paper !!

Now do you really think this QV India used aboard - Queen Victoria Zanzibar stamp is genuine cancellation (rubber stamp) from Zanzibar or just a rubber stamp applied to it?

Reason for my suspicious that it's very easy to make rubber stamp and applied on any old stamp and claim it as rare India used abroad.!!

We had seen lot of FORGERY rubber stamp so chances of this QV India used aboard - Queen Victoria Zanzibar stamp is also very high.!!




Also seller is currently selling following some BOGUS Gandhi stamp cancellation.!!

Read more about it and you will quit collecting rubber stamps.!!

So if someone can make this fancy rubber than it will be very easy to make 100+ year old rubber stamp as no one knows what it looks like.!!


So what do you think about QV India used aboard - Queen Victoria Zanzibar stamp ?

Don't you think it's tempting to make this kind of rubber stamp and  claim it as QV stamp used abroad.!!

Forgery in Queen Victoria stamps is widely available.


In past I wrote about Forgery cancellation on East India Company stamp from Penang straits cancellation. You can see that forgery cancellation of India used abroad in following screenshot of my blog.

Now what do you think about Queen Victoria India used abroad stamp.?

Is it Genuine or Forgery?

When you compare stamp of Queen Victoria used abroad with Penang strait cancellation on India stamp used abroad it make my brain wiggly.!!

In past we had seen India USED abroad Gandhi stamp. It was used on Tibet cover and stamps, India Gandhi stamps and Nepal Indian Embassy Cancellation, which was not even  sold under $10.!!

It's a real true example of India used abroad on 2 different countries.!! But it's a FORGED cover.!!!

Now don't you think all this INDIA USED ABROAD cannot be trusted ?

To me it's nothing but to make money from new collectors!!!

If you don't believe that then please check out my other blog post to know more about how to cheat new collectors by making them think about high priced Gandhi philatelic material is only thing to collect or invest in it.

It will open your eyes that indeed this can happen, but it's already happening and you might be one of the victim like ME.!!!

So BEWARE what you are collecting and why are you collecting.!!

Read my following blog post to understand about stamp collection in DECLINE.!!

1) A Hobby in Decline : 1948 Gandhi USED cover case study.!!
2) A Hobby in Decline.!! - Part-2
3) How to invest when philately price is dropping.

If you see stamps are not even selling or selling like 5-10 times lower their value than mentioned in catalog.!!


There is nothing RARE or Scare in philately because this hobby is in downward trend because experienced collectors are loosing interest because value is not appreciating and new collectors are not coming in to this because there are lot of other things to do for them such as playing video games on Nintendo or X-box , social networking on facebook or google+ or  surfing on web through internet or SMS through iphone or android or watch games such as cricket, football or basketball.!!

Only way philately can sustain is to stop cheating in this hobby. Yes CHEATING.!! which is what you will see in order to increase value artificially by inflating the price by SHILL bidding, not paying to seller or mutual understanding cancelling transaction and lot more.

To know more about this kind of activity read my following blog post and think what are the possibilities in cheating, glorification, SHILL bidding, FAKE, Forgery etc.
