In 1969 Somalia honored Mahatma Gandhi by issuing 3 stamps. Somalia was the only country to issue 3 stamps in 1969 even though more than 20 countries issued stamp of Mahatma Gandhi in 1969 to celebrate 100th Anniversary of birth (1869 -1969). (India issued 4 stamps + 3 Postcards.) & Mauritius issued 6 stamps.!!
From above 2 screen shot you can notice that 3 stamps were sold under $3.!!! I think this is a fair value for next 2-3 years.!!
If you notice that one bidder was me upto 2.10 euros. So think of the price if I was not bidder.!!!
Also look at the interest of buyer bidding, almost at the end of auction.!!! This is known as real purchase.!!
So please look at all this factor before you buy it. Don't just buy, because you need this stamp in your collection. See what are trends going on in Gandhi stamps and watch pattern of buying and selling.
I was not aware of this when I jump in Gandhi Philately and I paid very high price which I don't think it will ever reach at that price unless I start increasing price and stop writing about my experience.!! (BTW: I paid $18 for this 3 stamps.!!).
This is embarrassing to me.!! But that's OK.!! Only one person has to be embarrassed not all new collectors or others also.
Do you why I paid this much price.? Because there was all kind of material about Gandhi Stamps but no where I can find information about Price of Gandhi Stamps and Philatelic material, what's going on in Gandhi Philately such as FAKE items, useless items, what to collect etc so I was alone fighting with this dealers.!! but that all gave me enough experience which I am using now to educate others.!!!
Also what I learned in 3 years that this stamps you can buy it any time because there are enough for every Gandhi collectors and all experienced collector already have it. Also don't think there are lot of new collectors are joining in Gandhi Philately.!! But I think in future they will be as price will stable down from current rate.!
