The Cinematographe made motion pictures very popular, and it could be better be said that Lumiere's invention began the motion picture era. In 1895, Lumiere and his brother were the first to present projected, moving, photographic, pictures to a paying audience of more that one person.
So to celebrate this Nicaragua issued miniature sheet with Nicaragua stamps of 12 famous movie stars/authors/producer/directors to celebrate (1895 - 1995) 100 Años del Cine.
On each Nicaragua stamps it is mentioned year 1994 but actually it was issued in 1995. In Scott Catalogue this stamp sheet issue date is mentioned as 14 November 1994, but actual date is 22-Feb, 1995.
|FAKE 1994 FDC|
|Genuine 1995 FDC|
This will not even consider as a private FDC because stamp sheet was not actually issued on this date.!! It was taken from false source which was never corrected in that sources and creator of this FAKE FDC thought this is the correct date and made rubber stamp with this date!!!!!!!
After reading above blog post don't you think similar pattern for making FDC or Max Card in Gandhi Philately.!! (It's a whole new topical Philately !! FAKE Gandhi thematic collection.!!)
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.!!
Is it hobby with investment or scam in mind? !! Think before you buy any Gandhi Philately Material as it is very easy to make rubber stamp.!!!
This is how stamp printers and stamp dealers prosper!!
Thanks again Dr. Jean-Michel for your valuable time to nail this FAKE FDC.
This blog is dedicated to my philatelic friend who is one of the renowned Nicaraguan Philatelist Dr. Jean-Michel (Professor Jean) who had helped me to find more information about Nicaragua 100 Years of Movies FDC with miniature stamp sheet issued in 1995.(On stamp it is mentioned as "Correos 1994")
As I was not satisfied with information available about Nicaragua stamp sheet on Gandhi resources on Internet as well as in philately handbook about this 100 years of Movie stamp sheet FDC so I decide to email (Call a Friend option!!) Dr. Jean-Michel and it did not took him long time to send me accurate info about this stamp sheet which will not only help to Gandhi Collectors but also all other collectors that what are possibilities in stamp collection or Philately.!!
