Gabon Stamps - Gabon Gandhi Stamp First Day Cover is one example to make you fool!!

Hello Gandhi Philatelist,

Recently I saw 1998 Gandhi first day cover with stamp from Gabon and it was very surprising.

My personal opinion for this first day cover is not officially issued by Gabon postal service department or this is  DIY (Do It Yourself). using regular home printer.!

Look at the quality of printing Gandhi Cachet. It's not properly aligned also.

It was sold by seller "MARP" from Netherlands and there were 2-3 bidders for this first day cover and it was sold for $27 and looks like there wereonly 2 bidders "0261orthod" and "vmootha"

I don't think this is valued more than $3-4 even if it is genuine so think before you buy. So you need to think/decide how it sold for $27.!!

To me it's a good combination of seller and buyer to make you fool by making you think that this is Genuine/Officially issued F.D.C and it's really valued $27 by bidders.!!

So not sure why $27 for this cover which does not even looks like official cover. Also looking to all forgery in cancellation rubber stamp it does not make sense at all to buy it or even to pay it when whole world is running away from this hobby because of hobby is declining.!!

Read my following blog post to understand about stamp collection in DECLINE.!!

1) A Hobby in Decline : 1948 Gandhi USED cover case study.!!
2) A Hobby in Decline.!! - Part-2
3) How to invest when philately price is dropping.

If you see stamps are not even selling or selling like 5-10 times lower their value than mentioned in catalog.!!

There is nothing RARE or Scare in philately because this hobby is in downward trend because experienced collectors are loosing interest because value is not appreciating and new collectors are not coming in to this because there are lot of other things to do for them such as playing video games on Nintendo or X-box , social networking on facebook or google+ or  surfing on web through internet or SMS through iphone or android or watch games such as cricket, football or basketball.!!

Only way philately can sustain is to stop cheating in this hobby. Yes CHEATING.!! which is what you will see in order to increase value artificially by inflating the price by SHILL bidding, not paying to seller or mutual understanding cancelling transaction and lot more.

To know more about this kind of activity read my following blog post and think what are the possibilities in cheating, glorification, SHILL bidding, FAKE, Forgery etc.
