Inverted Jenny - King George - King Edward Stamp comparison with Gandhi stamps.

Hello Gandhi Stamps Collectors,

The Inverted Jenny (also known as an Upside Down Jenny or Jenny Invert) is a United States postage stamp first issued on May 10, 1918 in which the image of the Curtiss JN-4 airplane in the center of the design appears upside-down; it is probably the most famous error in American philately.(From Wikipedia)

Because the center image was printed first, with the frame added second; it is actually the frame that is printed upside-down, not the center image of the Jenny.

Only one pane of 100 of the invert stamps was ever found, making this error one of the most prized in all philately. A block of four inverted Jennys was sold at a Robert A. Siegel auction in October 2005 for US $2.7 million.

As you know that now I started comparing Gandhi stamps with all other expensive stamps and in this blog post I am writing about Inverted Jenny and British India stamps including 1948 Gandhi Stamps.

So read carefully and think twice what will affect your collection.

As you all know that in Gandhi Stamps and Philatelic material when price is high there is forgery and that the case here also.!!

Following is screenshot from eBay where seller is selling  Replica or facsimile of this stamp. 

Seller of Inverted Jenny is also selling lot of Replica and facsimile. He is selling used 1948 India Gandhi SERVICE stamp on piece of paper with Governor General PO. (screenshot is all the way in the end of the blog post).

Following is classic example of forgery of King Edward from British Central Africa.

Now think about chances of all expensive British Indian Stamps available and think what are chances you are getting forgery or fake like "Inverted Jenny".

Look at following screenshot were none of the seller has not mentioned about Replica or Facsimile so I think it's Genuine.

But my question is what are the chances of getting Replica or Facsimile like we see on top ?

2 weeks ago I wrote blog post about King George stamps and King Edward stamp related to chances of forgery. Please read by clicking following link to understand overall picture.

King George 25 Rupees stamp from India Postage, sold for $291

India 25 Rupees King George V stamp with overprint SERVICE, sold for $222.

King George V 25 Rupees stamps from British India, sold for $250

King Edward 15 and 25 Rupees Stamp from British India from "Taiwan" for $1990 

Again let me make sure that I am not telling that above King George stamps and King Edward stamp are fake or forgery.

But what are the chances.?

But "ma-collectorshop" is also selling 1948 Gandhi 10 Rupees SERVICE stamp also. But he selling as "Not Genuine"!! so it's OK. He is not trying to cheat as he mentioned it.

Now you compare all the above and think what's going on in stamp collection and think twice about collecting British India stamps and specially in Gandhi SERVICE stamp as well as 10 Rupees Gandhi stamp.

If they can print Inverted Jenny, King Edward stamp from British Central Africa and others then what are the chances of King George V stamp from India, King Edward stamp from India and others.
