Stamp value declining .!! Belgium 1999 Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Tin Tin , Charlie Chaplin, Lenin , Pope John stamp price is not appreciating.

Hello Gandhi Stamps Collectors,

On July 25th  I saw Belgium 1999 Gandhi stamp was sold in auction delcampe.net by seller "tanguera" for only 0.45 Euros (55 US cents).!!

Even 1999 miniature sheet with 20 stamps each face value of 0.42 Euros each (8.40 Euros) was sold for 6 Euros.!! in April 2012.!!

This means that seller or original buyer lost 2.40 Euros on this miniature sheet after 13 years of investment.!! 

This means that even Gandhi stamps is not for investment.!!

Also in November 2011 I wrote about this stamp sheet from Belgium, so please read and you decide.


Don't you think stamp value is not appreciating at all in this modern computer and electronic world were less and less children are intersting in this hobby and also lot of collectors are loosing interest.

Following screenshot from delcampe.net were you can see lucky buyer and looser seller id.!! 

(It's easy to see full transaction on delcampe then on eBay where eBay id is hidden!!)

This Gandhi stamp was issued in a miniature sheet in 1999 along with other world famous people such as Martin Luther King stamp, John F Kennedy stamp, Nelson Mandela stamp, Pope Johannes XXII stamp, King Boudewijn stamp, Willy Brandt stamp, Vladimir Lenin stamp, Ernesto 'CHE' Guevara stamp, Golda Meir stamp,  Jesse Owens stamps, Football stamp, Bicycling Eddy Merckx stamp, (female) singer Edith Piaf stamp, Pop and Rock music the Beatles stamps , film/movie Charley Chaplin stamp, Tourism beach and holidays stamps, Scouting stamps, Comics Tim  and Struppi von Hergé stamp, philately stamp & magnifying-glass.

Now you have to decide what you have to do with this hobby.!!

Please read following series of my blog post  to understand what is going on stamp collecting world specially in Indian Philatelic material with 1948 Gandhi stamps.
