King George British India stamp - Comparing with Forged Inverted Gandhi Service Overprint stamp

Hello Gandhi stamp collectors,

As you all know that 1948 Gandhi Service overprint stamp from India is Forged more than any other stamp. Also BPA and RPSL expert certification are re-used to sell forged stamps of Gandhi Service stamp from India issued to celebrate India First Anniversary of Independence.

Recently I saw Error in Gandhi Service Overprint stamp.!!  SERVICE was printed in reverse. 

Seller already mentioned about this forgery of  India First Anniversary of Independence Service Inverted stamp so we don't need to do research or investigate.

Also looks like there are no buyer of this INVERTED stamp as it was sold under $2.!!

But now I am comparing above stamp with British India King George stamp and to me it looks lot of similarity, except price.!!

This stamp was for sale for $199.!! and no buyer also.!!

Not sure whether following British India stamp of King George is Genuine or FORGERY like Gandhi service stamp of India, but to me it looks like chances are very high.

I am not expert on this so I cannot say that this is forgery but it's up to buyer to decide as they have to pay for this stamp and if they don't investigate thoroughly then they will have piece of paper.!!

So what are chances of this British India King George SERVICE OVPT stamp is also FORGED.?

Don't you think this can be also forged because  it's very easy to overprint and who knows whether this was correct printing or even printed on this kind of stamps.!!

It's easy to make 100 times more money than just selling mint stamps so it's tempting to do so.!!

Please read my following post related to King George stamp, King Edward stamp, British India Specimen stamp and Nigeria King George stamps to understand what's going on with all forgery, facsimile, specimen, pricing etc.

3) Forgery in 1854 Queen Victoria stamp
4) King George Specimen stamp

So beware what are you collecting.

So you need to think always before you buy otherwise you will regret.

To me at the end it will be JUST PIECE OF PAPER.!!

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.!!).

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.!!
