Malta stamps Gandhi : Is SKY falling or SKY is the limit in Gandhi stamps and philatelic material.!!

Hello Gandhi Philatelist,

Looks like sky is falling on Gandhi philately.!!

Recently I saw register Malta 1969 Gandhi stamp used First Day Cover send to Belgium with other 2 extra postage was sold only for $4.!!

Can't believe that after 40+ years Gandhi First Day Cover is selling for so cheap.!!

Don't know why it's so cheap even though it's official stamp issued by government, but my guess is lot of cheating in buying philatelic material by shill bidding, overflowing of Gandhi personalised stamps and philatelic material and decline in stamp collection hobby is major factor.

Looks like Gandhi Stamps and Philatelic material are not for INVESTMENT.!!! It's just hobby which is declining like other hobby such as coin collection, baseball cards, match box label etc.

But if you see following screenshot from seller "Phil4u", "Bobby92" and "7656" then you will think SKY is the limit in Gandhi Philately.!! because Malta First Day Cover is selling for $45 -$15!!

Just F.D.C which are widely available and not even postally used register cover with extra stamps like we saw on above screenshot.

I know it's seller choice to sell what ever price they want to sell.

But it's up to buyer how much they want to pay.

Now look at following screenshot where seller is selling for $2!!

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 how some collector throw money on Gandhi Philatelic material then please read my other blog post and you can follow them.!!
