BTW:- It's for auction again. Click following link to see.
Following screenshot is of half sheet Gandhi Specimen stamp from seller "melbournestamps" from Australia was sold for $2000.!! from Indian eBay buyer s***i (1146) "stampofindia".!!
Does this makes sense why buy 50 stamps less for $500.!! But it's upto seller to decide and buy(paying also) it in multi bid auction.!!
Don't know why but "Melbournestamps" is lucky to sell some of the high priced Gandhi Stamps.
But recently I saw "melbournestamps" was also selling this full sheet of specimen stamp !!for $15,900 or Make Offer.!!
This Gandhi Specimen stamps are coming regularly since last 3-4 years or more on eBay auction from Australia as well as Germany and I don't see any LEGIT sale even at $2500.!!!
But seller is hoping for one buyer!! Of course all seller will hope for it.!! But here Gandhi Philately market is very very small or tiny compare to other investment item such as GOLD.!!
So what a price difference for this specimen stamp. One is selling for $2500 and other one is selling for $16000.!!!
But still to me it is not a valid stamp because COUNTRY NAME is missing.!!
Also ASHOKA WATERMARK PAPER then it looks like it should be from India, but guessing don't work because there is also no money whether it's Indian Rupees or German Mark or Australian dollar or no money because no country.!!
Don't you think something BIG going on in Gandhi Stamps since long long time by Glorifying this kind of stamp in several exhibition, yearbook, philatelic magazine, philatelic books etc along seller and bidders?
Single stamp was selling for 250 Euros.!!, but a year ago it was for 29 - 49 Euros.
So not sure what's going on.!! How collector will decide whether it's 29 Euros or 250 Euros.!!
Following screenshot will show you that eBay seller "edva52" sold single stamp for 29 Euros as well as for 49 Euros.!!!
