Hello Gandhi Philatelist,
Recently I saw 1948 Gandhi used cover with stamps from India and I was completely surprised when I took a deep dive !!
To me it looks like completely INSANE.!!
Following cover has 2 issue.
1) Is it early usage of 1948 Gandhi stamps.
2) It took 3 years to reach from India to Paris.
So not sure whether this is Forgery cover?
one of a kind genuine cover with early usage of Gandhi stamps with airmail delivery took 3 years(1948-1951)!!
fastest mail in 1951 from Coimbatore to Paris in 4 days.(13-Aug to 17-Aug)
1) Really this is early usage ?:
As per seller this is 1948 cover. so it is early usage because stamp was issued on 15-August and this cover has cancellation of 13-August.
So this is "Minus 2 Day cover"
After doing all this research I got one more question.
So to me this looks it's an extreme example of used cover which is needs more investigation.
Looking to all this kinds of used cover with 1948 Gandhi stamps from India, which make me think that it's an EXTREME push to glorified 1948 Gandhi Stamps from India as Investment.
Do you think it's worth to collect or invest in 1948 Gandhi as well as British India stamps and philatelic material including 1911 First Aerial Mail, 1854 Queen Victoria, King George, King Edward etc.
Do you think this is EXTERME example of Forgery or just happen to be like this?
A classic example of Philatelic gone EXTREME.!!!
