So my brain started thinking that what are the chances of this mint stamps can be converted to USED stamps so there will be less doubt about the forgery.!!
Now look at the following expensive 1854 Queen Victoria stamp from India selling as Mint stamps or Used stamps for very high price.
What are chances of this USED stamps are made from above stamp sheet ? I am not sure whether following are FAKE or forgery because I am not expert. But you know expertising certificate from BPA and RPSL are also re-used or re-copied in past so whom to trust.!!
In past we have seen forgery of King George stamps, King Edward Stamps and Queen Victoria stamps from various countries so this is nothing new in British India stamps.
Don't you think it's easy to do because here you don't even need to make rubber stamp with alphabets, numbers or special symbols?
If forger can make rubber stamp of 1948 Gandhi special cancellation or one of the famous FAKE special cancellation from Germany with Emblem of India all this square or circle with just lines are very easy to forged and applied.
Check following screenshot how easy is it to make a rubber stamp and create forged philatelic material from India as well as from Germany or Nicaragua.
Also chances of getting caught is less because it's USED by applying rubber stamp, keeping in soil or exposing to sun and make it toned.!!
Look at sheer quantity of 1854 Queen Victoria stamp is currently available on eBay.!!
Do you consider this as a RARE stamps ?
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.!!).
