King George stamps printed on Postcard : Chalta Dak Ghar : Mobile Post Office : Is it Genuine ?

Hello Gandhi Philatelist,

Following is postmark or special cancellation or rubber stamp of "Jai Hind"  or "Chalta Dak Ghar" on British India postcard with printed King George stamp 1/2 Anna.

My Questions:-

1) Special postmark cancellation is officially issued by Indian Post Office?

2) Send on 1st May , 1948 (Saturday) and Received on 2nd May, 1948 (Sunday).

Was Post Office were open on Sunday ?

3) Timing on receiving CDS is 7:00 A.M. Was Nagpur G.P.O was open that early on Sunday and working?

Was PO employee work that early.!

As per my knowledge and research, post office in India were closed on Sunday except on 15th August 1948.

We had seen lot of Forgery in Nepal Indian Embassy cancellation with Sunday CDS.!! This is completely weird because it's Embassy of India opened on Sunday and also PO on Sunday.!! Click following link to read about that.

Description by Seller :-  Before the regular 1st Mobile Post office started in Nagpur on 30th January 1949 ( inauguration of Night Air Mail Services ) this Mobile Post Office was started on 1st May 1948, well before the famous Gandhi Mourning Stamps were issued on 15th August 1948 at Wardha a town near Nagpur.

A special Post Mark with 'Jai Hind' in Hindi was provided on 1st May 1948. Only a handful of covers and post cards obtained this postmark, and are rarely offered.

About 8km from Wardha M.K. Gandhi the father of our Nation established Sevagram Ashram, on the outskirts of a village Shegaon.

A must inclusion for any Gandhi/Patriotic/Jai Hind/Mobile Post Office collectors"

Now look at the pricing.!! It's unbelievable !! It was for sale for $1499!! and again for $399.!!! 

No one is interested to buy.!! because it's just PIECE of PAPER.!!

To me all this Gandhi Philately, King George stamps, King Edward stamps and Queen Victoria stamps looks BOGUS as we have seen forgery and fake in everything.!! Click following link to read my blog post about all Fake and Forgery inKing George stamps, King Edward stamps and Queen Victoria stamps.

It's just to make money. It has nothing to do with stamp collection or hobby, but just glorification in order to trick someone to buy it.!!!

Let me make sure that I am not expert in philatelic material or even stamp collection, but I am just expressing my view with some kind of common knowledge and my 4 years of  experience in Gandhi Stamp and Philatelic collection, so it's up to buyer to decide whether this is Genuine or does it make sense about what I am writing  so do what  ever you think is good for you. You are thinking to buy or  want to by and it's your money so I cannot tell you what to do. It's all up to you.!!

We have seen lot of FAKE or Forgery special cancellation in Gandhi Philately so I am curious about this one also.

Also if you see all have one similarity. Auction starting price is very high so it makes interesting item.!! 

Also don't think famous collector who exhibits around the world and also are brand ambasodar of their country are buying this kind of item for their collection.!! They get it FREE.!!

Yes they get it FREE so this kind of questionable (might beFAKE, FORGERY, FACSIMILE) can be glorified when they pop up in their award winning philatelic exhibition.

Following are some of the material which are FAKE and might be in some of the exhibition.

Also don't forget about one of the most famous recent FAKE special cancellation  from Germany (completely FAKE as it is not even exist or not issued by German post!!) issued to celebrate first anniversary of Winnenden School Massacre on October 2nd 2009.!!! on occasion of International Day of Non-Violence.!! 

Extreme or Desperate example to make money and glorification of Gandhi philatelic.!! They don't have any feelings about people who lost life and their family who are still grieving for them.

Also don't you think this is ongoing in Indian Philately after seeing 1911  First Aerial Mail Forged cancellation from Allahabad, India during U.P.Exhibition.!! (click following link to read it.!!)
If all of the above is possible, so don't you think it is easy to make this Round Table Conference cancellation (Rubber stamp)!!  Recently I saw 1931 India Round Table Conference cancellation from UK on International Reply Coupon which was not even attended by Mahatma Gandhi. 

Looking to all FAKE and Forgery in  Gandhi Philately I also question this kind of rubber stamp.!! 

Please read my following blog post  and check out following images about following FAKE AND FORGED Gandhi stamps and philatelic cancellation.

Please read following series of my blog post  to understand what is going on stamp collecting world specially in Indian Philatelic materials and you will think it's all BOGUS.!! Yes it's all BOGUS.!!

10) 1911 First Aerial Post - Allahabad - Indian Philately Exposed - Part IV

So what do you think about this special cancellation on King George Postcard.?

To me it looks questionable after seeing all the thing happening in Gandhi Philately.

Don't you think it's easy to make this kind of rubber stamps and apply on any postcard and create unique  postcard.

So careful what are you into otherwise you have something UNIQUE!!
