so what do you think about following PRIVATE FDC without "Jai Hind" special cancellation or without Official Cachet from India post.!!
Now moving to private FDC with local post office cancellation on Gandhi India stamp.!! Does it make sense to make this kind of cover?
Look at pricing of following private 1948 Gandhi First Day Cover from India. It's selling from $225 - $675.!!
I think this is very very high even if they are genuine.!! It should not be more than $10-$25 but that's the way in Gandhi stamp collection specially in 1948 Gandhi stamps from India.
But if eBay buyer "hitlerandgandhi" is active then this will sells for $2000-$5000!!
To me it does not make sense private Gandhi First Day Cover in 2012 also because it does not have interesting things to collect and it does not even make unique or GENUINE because this can be done any time.
We all had seen forged special "Jai Hind" cancellation so it's not a big deal about official cancellation also but it still make unique than private cancellation from regular post office on first day cover.
Also you can have special cancellation afterwards by forgery or some one has stolen special cancellation or we might know whether that particular special cancellation is indeed genuine such as from Simla or Pondicherry or other smaller town.!!
So keep your eyes open when you jump in to any private First day cover with Gandhi India stamp!! otherwise you will have some forgery material which no one will buy it or even win you in a exhibit.!!
You can only win a exhibit if you are a very brand name(involved in various countries philately committe, judges in international exhibitor etc) in philately then they judges don't check whether it's genuine or forgery because judges themselves depends on that brand name philately exhibitor.!!
So my advice is to stay away from all lucrative offers about INVESTMENT in 1948 Gandhi stamp from India or any British India stamp collection.
So beware what are you collecting.
So you need to think always before you buy otherwise you will regret.
If you have money to throw away then start collecting British India Stamps, 1948 Gandhi Stamps and Philatelic material and you will have a PIECE of PAPER (with no peace of mind.!!).
