Hello Gandhi Philatelist,

As we all try to collect different philatelic material related to Mahatma Gandhi there are some dealers/collectors who will try to take benefit of us.

Don't just buy it after looking or reading certain philatelic handbooks or stamp exhibit, but think what is authenticity of that piece of paper.

Think RARE stamps or philatelic material are just made for money not for collection.!!

In past I wrote blog post about Round Table Conference postmark on International Reply Coupon. Please read following blog post before  read this so you understand where are you jumping.!! (what are you going in to.!!)

As mentioned in above blog post that Indian Round Table Conference postmark are very easy to Forged and make  all kind of philatelic material so what are chance you will get Genuine item.?

I think 0%!!

Following postmark (PMK) has nothing to do with Mahatma Gandhi as he did not attended this First Round Table conference.!!!

Now let's see what's going on. Recently I saw Indian Round Table Conference (FIRST) for sale on eBay by seller "buyitnowitem".!!

This seller was also selling FORGERY items of 1948 Gandhi stamps so chances of this as FORGERY or Bogus is very very high. Click following link to read forgery by ebay seller "buyitnowitem"

But in past this seller "buyitnowitem" sold FORGERY or FAKE 1948 Gandhi stamps FDC.  So how can we TRUST that 1931 Gandhi theme round table PMK on Certificate of Posting receipt is GENUINE or indeed Authenticate.!!  

Following is FAKE special cancellation on private 1948 Gandhi FDC from India which was even sold 5-6 times one eBay.!! (not only fake cancellation, but fake bidding.!!)

Click following link to read about this FORGED FDC and sold multiple times.!!

Now can you trust "buyitnowitem".?

As all of you know that it's very easy to make this kind of RUBBER STAMPS which can be applied to any mint receipt!!!!!

It's just nothing but to make MONEY!!! 

Don't you think expensive it goes more Forgery happens.!! This was for sale for only $400!!!!!!! You can find unused  or mint certificate of posting receipt and after that just use rubber stamp. Now you have $400 worth of GANDHI philatelic material.!!

Following is mint certificate of posting receipt.!!!

There are lot of dealers/collectors on ebay who are not trusted. It will be very hard to find all, but if you read my blog you will get some idea how to protect yourself !!!!!!!

In past I wrote about "ph4uv" who was not only selling Gandhi 1948 FDC but also Lithuanian philatelic material. Following is the link.

Following screenshot is a preview of rubber stamp I tried (anyone can) to make one one  rubberstamp.net using round table cancellation image (all the top of this blog). I only previewed it, not order it.!!

Now you have to decide whether this Indian Round Table cancellation is Genuine or Forged or even FAKE.!!

Don't you think it's easy to make all this special cancellation, postmark cancellation, post office cancellation and apply to any mint or even used covers, postcards or even International Reply Coupon (Coupon Response International.).!!

It's very hard to find Genuine cancellation (special cancellation) as it is very easy to forged.!!! and sometimes there are NO GENUINE cancellation even exist.!!

Still cannot decide then read following blog post which might help you.

Still not decided then my opinion is AVOID it all the cost.!! and have peace of mind instead of worrying you are buying Genuine material.!!!

To me all Gandhi Philatelic material available ( specially before 1950) looks FAKE or Forgery as it is very hard to find Genuine stuff and as new collectors (like me) wants to collect, so some greedy experienced collectors/dealers will provide  all of us as well as experienced collectors.!!

Still want to do research  then please read my other blog post and have fun.!!
