You have to decide whether following FDC (Private FDC without official cachet) is indeed Genuine. You can read my previous blog posts and compare with it.
But if I was you I will stay away from PRIVATE FDC because chances of forgery will be very high.!!
Now one of the seller "ph4uv" I found is my research for this blog post. He sold some Lithuanian Covers which according to them is FAKE.!!
Now that seller "ph4uv" is also selling Gandhi Philately material. I am not sure whether following cover is FAKE or Forged but we all collectors need to be aware of all the things before we buy it.
Following is PRIVATE Gandhi 1948 FDC sold by "ph4uv". How can we trust this seller as in past he had sold some FAKE philatelic material.!!
Following is screenshot of bidder list who bidded on this item. Not sure whether this bidder knows about activity of this seller.
You might be wondering what to do with bidder list. But this is Gandhi Philately. Everything needs to be looked in order to make sure it's a valid transaction.
If you really want to know who the buyer is then look feedback of buyer and you will find it if transaction is partially completely if item is not return or lost etc. If buyer feedback for seller is postive then we can still say transaction is partially complete.!! (because buyer and seller agreed to returned it.!!). But eBay will know what happen actually.!!
So what do you think about this Private FDC? Is it Genuine or FAKE?
