Chile Gandhi Stamps on FFC during 1974 Football Soccer World Cup First Flight Cover

Hello Gandhi Collectors,

One of the best FFC ( if really flown in first flight!!) with Gandhi stamps was issued in 1974 with Chile Gandhi Stamps during World Cup Soccer.

The 1974 FIFA World Cup, the tenth staging of the World Cup, was held in West Germany (including West Berlin ) from 13 June to 7 July.

This FFC is dated 13 June 1974 so I am not sure whether first flight was schedule on this date or some thing related to soccer team travelling in this flight.

But as this is dated 13 June I don't think soccer team was travelling in this flight as they will reach 3-7 days or more in advanced.!!!

So I am not sure whether this can be consider as First Flight Cover or just Event cover.

I can think it as Event cover but it is not FFC ?

While researching about correct price about this FFC, I was surprised by the price of this FFC as it was sold under $5.!!

I think it's a fair value for this FFC (if really flown in first flight) comparing 2 Gandhi OVPT stamps from Chile and also one more stamp.

Read more about Gandhi FFC and understand what's going on in FFC world.!!

Airbus A380 FFC ( Bogus FFC)

United Nations Stamp on FFC. ( Does not make sense.)

Hawaiian Airlines FFC (to make money by using Gandhi stamps.!!)

1911 First Aerial Mail from Allahabad (Fake cancellation)

Now think what are chances of First Flight departure on June 13, 1974 !!
