I saw 1948 Gandhi 4 stamps FDC with 10 rupees stamps sold for $1675.!!! At this price someone in India can buy car (Tata Nano).!!
I am not sure who is spending this much money in philatelic world, but someone is.
Check out following screen shot and you will be surprised.

other bidder ---> c**b (3575), b***b(209), a***d(228)
Don't you see this bidders all the time.!! Don't know how much money they have.!!
I am not sure what is going on with 1948 10 rupees Gandhi stamp and FDC but the price are going through roofs. Even though worldwide stamp collecting hobby is declining and stamp collectors cannot sell there collection even though with internet boom in last 10 years except Gandhi philatelic material.!!
I am not sure how many advanced Gandhi collectors are in world who are trying to buy this kind of philatelic material.
I think it will be interesting topic to start researching on this.
