Gandhi Mauritius Stamps 1969 value - Why you will quit Gandhi Philately - Part -9

Hello Gandhi Collectors,

Mauritius is an island nation off the southeast coast of the African continent in the southwest Indian Ocean, about 900 kilometres  east of Madagascar and  its capital city is Port Louis.

In 1969, along with other 40+ countries, Mauritius also honored Mahatma Gandhi by issuing  6 Gandhi stamps to celebrate 100th birth anniversary. (1869 -1969). Mauritius is only country in world to issue 6 stamps + Miniature sheet in 1969. This 6 stamps shows different pictures of different age which makes it unique for collectors. 

Now if you see following screenshot you will notice what price this stamps were sold in October 2011. It's under $2 even with margin in bottom. !! Even Miniature Sheet will be between 1-2$.

What I notice in my 3 years of collection is that there are lot of this stamps available in current market, so I think this is fair value of this stamps.

Also I notice there are lot of used covers and register covers with this stamps and MS with Dodo stamps. Initially I was thinking to buy that covers but after more research I question this covers made  in 1969 and 2009. Looks like lot of questions needs to research on this used register cover including addresses, rubber stamp or official postmark cancel etc.

So Beware of this 1969 Mauritius Stamps and Register cover.

So if you pay more than $2 or $3 for this stamps then I think in future you will regret to be in Gandhi Philately and will quit this hobby.
