So make sure before you buy Gandhi stamps and FDC because there are lot out there. Don't think it's RARE or unique.!!
You will read lot that stamps for investment but in reality it's nothing but false or incorrect information provided using blogs, website, newsletter, year books, catalog value etc.
Actually stamps value is declining instead of investment.
Now look at the following screenshot and you will be amazed that 100 Miniature Sheet of 75th Anniversary of Salt Satyagraha is still available for only $100. ($1 each.!!). But it's not pricing but shear # of stamps available.
Following will explain importance of this stamp sheet. It was issued in 2005 to celebrate 75th Anniversary of Salt March (Dandi Kooch).
(From Wikipedia : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salt_March)
The Salt March, also known as the Salt Satyagraha began with the Dandi March on March 12, 1930, and was an important part of the Indian independence movement. It was a direct action campaign of tax resistance and nonviolent protest against the British salt monopoly in colonial India, and triggered the wider Civil Disobedience Movement.
This was the most significant organized challenge to British authority since the Non-cooperation movement of 1920–22, and directly followed the Purna Swaraj declaration of independence by the Indian National Congress on January 26, 1930. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (commonly called Mahatma Gandhi) led the Dandi march from his base, Sabarmati Ashram near Ahmedabad, to the sea coast near the village of Dandi.
As he continued on this 23 day, 240 mile (390 km) march to produce salt without paying the tax, growing numbers of Indians joined him along the way. When Gandhi broke the salt laws at 6:30 am on April 6, 1930, it sparked large scale acts of civil disobedience against the British Raj salt laws by millions of Indians.
The campaign had a significant effect on changing world and British attitudes toward Indian independence and caused large numbers of Indians to join the fight for the first time.
