1) Fake Pictorial Postmark Cancel To make collection unique or money.!!
2) Fake Postcards Just to make little money.!!
3) Fake seller (pretending from different country or trying to outbid .!!)
4) FAKE Error Stamp (to make money!!)
Following are screenshot which mentioned that it's Deemed False or Forgery so that's good thing otherwise collectors will be in big trouble.
But it's just common sense, how in the world after 150+ years you will find a very good quality of stamps and that one too in block of 4.!! I had also seen pane of 16 selling for unbelievable price.
So don't you think it's a huge push to get rid of all FAKE or Forgery material before stamp collection is bottomed out. Don't you think this Forgery is adding in decline of this hobby.!!
Following is example of Forgery of 39 Indian State Stamps.!! (7 already sold.!!). You can see 1854 QV stamps in it. So beware when you buy any Indian stamps specially from States of India or British India stamps.!!
So to all my fellow collectors please beware of FAKE and Forgery Gandhi Stamps and Philately materials available.!!
Following screenshot indicates that even block of 4 Queen Victoria RED lithograph is available in FORGERY.!!
Now let's see following screenshot and you will be surprised that a pane of 16 is also available for $3850!! I am not sure whether it's Forgery or Genuine. I will let you decide.!!
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.

After looking to this value to me it looks like no one wants to collect stamps in this modern world, because there are lot of others things to do, such as play video games on ipad, xbox, gamecube or on internet surf on web or facebook or lot of other outdoor activity such a hiking, skating, running etc or watch different shows on TV or sports games such as Cricket or Football or Basketball or just talking on smartphone or chating.!!
After all this kind of things you don't get any more extra time to pursue your hobby of stamp collection were not that many people are involved and you feel like retard when you talk to friends.!!
Also there are lot of cheating such as Forgery stamps, Shill bidding, BOGUS philatelic material involved in stamps collection.
