Also it was Sunday so not do you think Embassy was open ? If open do you think they were busy doing rubber stamping instead of celebrating first anniversary of Independence of India.!!
After thinking about my above 3 questions it looks to me that this cover was not possible in 1948.!!! because communcation and transportation between India and Nepal was not fast as we used to see today. Also not sure what was the need to send stamps to Nepal Embassy on first day.!!. If stamps can reach in Nepal for cancellation on Aug 15, 1948 then cacheted cover from P&T should reach there too.!!
One more thing why it is coming out of 60+ years.!! and how many of you have seen 1948 Typewriting address FDC with Gandhi Stamps?
Do anyone has seen BPA or BPP expertising certification of this cover.??
Try to avoid this item until you don't get satisfied answer to all of the above questions and concerns and any other that might arise after reading this. Use your imagination what are the possibilities.?
If you pride yourself enjoying Genuine collection, you should do through research and exposing any suspicious activity going on.
I bought this Nepal FDC 2-3 years back and I still have this costly album because I paid high price($80 for low value Stamp!!) for this, but I want others should do more research before you buy it.!! I bought this because there was no research what to look before you buy, but now you have it.
As again more unique or rare more research is needed and still it will not convince if you think given all the situation, circumstances etc.
Do you think I want to decrease my value of collection by writing this information.?!!! I also don't want to loose money on my investment, but I don't want to be proud or happy or look happy with this kind of questionable Gandhi philately item if we cannot find TRUTH about this kind of cover.!!
One more thing I can't see more new collector to get trap like me.!! When I was bidding on auction, no information about all this and other Gandhi dealers/collectors were laughing at me and other well known philatelist who were trapped, but now I don't want to laught or that dealers/collectors also don't want to laugh at other new collectors.!! This is for all RARE/UNIQUE Gandhi Philatelic material.!!
I hope this will help future collectors whether they really want to start collecting GANDHI stamps and philately.!!
Some useful blog post which might help you to protect yourself from this gruesome philately world.!!
