Dominica Human Rights Stamps : Dominica Gandhi stamp with Taj Mahal , Martin Luther King stamp with Capitol Hill, Albert Einstein Stamp with Glockenspeif, Eleanor Roosevelt Stamp with White House value is declining !!

Hello Gandhi Collectors,

Human rights are "commonly understood as inalienable fundamental rights to which a person is inherently entitled simply because she or he is a human being." Human rights are thus conceived as universal (applicable everywhere) and egalitarian (the same for everyone). These rights may exist as natural rights or as legal rights, in both national and international law. (From : Wikipedia)

Lot of countries has issued stamps for human rights activists such as Gandhi, MLK, Eleanor Roosevelt, Albert Einstein, Abhram Lincoln, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela and lot of other human right person who fought for human rights.

The United Nations General Assembly adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, intended as “as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations.” It consists of a preamble and 30 articles setting forth the basic civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights and fundamental freedoms that all human beings in every country should enjoy. The declaration’s provisions are considered to carry the weight of international law because they are so widely accepted and used as a yardstick for measuring the conduct of states.

In 1988 Dominica issued miniature sheet of $5 (East Caribbeann Dollar) to celebrate 40th Anniversary of human rights (1948 -1988) with picture of Gandhi, MLK, Eleanor Roosevelt and Albert Einstein.

Don't know what to do with Taj Mahal and Gandhi.!!!

Looks like there  is no interest in stamps even though Mahatma Gandhi is in this miniature sheet. Only one bidder !!

Reason for such a low value is

1) This sheets were printed to make money by printers and dealers so widely available.
2) Stamp hobby is declining and very less new collector collect MLK, Eleanor Roosvelt and even Einstein.!!
3) Even no new collectors for thematic collection like  Human Rights.

So please make sure about pricing before you buy. If you don't then in future you will regret because there is lot of shill bidding going on to increase pricing when dealer sells this kind of stamps.!!

Do you think stamps are still for investment.?

Don't you think that is there any Genuine GANDHI philatelic material ever issued.!!! Most of the Gandhi stamps were issued in 1969 and during that time there were very less collectors so it is not enough for current needs of collectors.

Also I think because of recent popularity of Gandhi stamps there is a huge demand of it  so dealers and resellers (even printers) are trying to take benefit by issuing FAKE and Forgery material of some never issued stamps, FDC or Used Covers including Register Covers so Beware before you enter in to Gandhi Philately collection.!!

I was surprised when I saw this stamp sheet sold under US $5.!! (East Caribbean Dollar is pegged to the United States dollar since 1976 and the exchange rate is US$1 = EC$2.70) Now if you compare $1.00 in 1981 had the same buying power as $2.54 in 2011 after calculating inflation. So current value of this stamp should be 12.7 US dollar.!!

This indicates stamp value is not appreciating at all.!! and it's declining.!!
