1854 QUEEN VICTORIA STAMPS : Forgery in Indian stamps & Gandhi Boycott Label

Hello Gandhi Stamp Collectors,

I know I am going out of my topic, but to understand wide picture of current philately trend we need to see complete picture and that's what I am researching this 1854 Queen Victoria Anna stamps, King Edward 1902 stamp, 1911 Aerial Post mail from Allahabad  and other Indian Stamps specially from British India and Princely States of India.!!


Recently while studying some Forgery stamps about 1948 Gandhi stamps, I came across with 1854 stamps from India printed by Lithograph and  I was surprised when I saw it was selling as Forgery (Deemed False).

Then I compare some of the Gandhi stamps and boycott label and I can see lot of similarities between Gandhi Stamps and Stamps from India. I cannot believe that there is lot of forgeries in Indian stamps specially in British India stamps (Pre-Independence) and Gandhi stamps and Philately material.

Both of the following labels were printed with lithograph printing and to me it all reprinted (Forged) as genuine is very very hard to available or impossible to available same way like Gandhi Service stamps used on cover. You can find Gandhi Service stamp on paper but it's all forged cancellation (rubber stamps).


Check out my following blog post about FAKE 1948 Gandhi stamps from India and you will start thinking what are possibilities.


So when price is high (expensive) it needs to be make sure that you are not getting any facsimile or photocopy of stamps.!!


You can read about Gandhi Boycott label blog post by clicking following link.


The first stamps valid for postage throughout India were placed on sale in October, 1854 with four values: 1/2 anna, 1 anna, 2 annas, and 4 annas. Featuring a youthful profile of Queen Victoria. All four values were designed and printed in Calcutta, and issued without perforations or gum. All were lithographed except for the 2 annas green, which was produced by typography from copper clich├ęs or from electrotyped plates.

Following are some of the Forgery stamps available on eBay so please beware before you buy any Indian stamps specially British-India and Indian States as you will buy some FAKE or Forged stamps if you are not careful.

Following are some of the famous FAKE Gandhi stamps and philately I am  aware off.

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.
