Olympics stamps Einstein stamps : Look what happen to RARE stamp.!!

Hello Gandhi Stamp collectors,

I can't BELIEVE it.!!

Nicaragua miniature stamp sheet with Einstein stamp and Gandhi stamp with borders related to 1980 Olympic, 1979 UNICEF was sold under $1.!!

If you think about this combination of famous people"Mahatma Gandhi and Elbert Einstein", world orginistation "UNICEF", special events "1980 Olympic" "Ano De La Liberacion", famous place "Taj Mahal" it makes very UNIQUE stamp.

But this combination will make fight in different thematic collection to buy it.!!! and so the price will also go up.!!

In past this stamp was sold for $6, but this is the new low. You can read my other blog post about Nicaragua stamps with ERROR in Einstein stamp, Olympic stamp, UNICEF stamp.!!

This combination stamp was one time regarded as RARE error stamp as very few stamp were available, but in last 2-3 years there are more than 1000 were for sale.!!

You will see this stamp sheet selling for $10-15, but it's nothing but SHILL Bidding (where seller, bids on his own item or relatives/friends help o increase price).

But forget about shill bidding, according to me this is not an ERROR stamp to begin with because it was made for ERROR(deliberate act).

You can also find this Einstein stamp and Olympic stamp with Gandhi stamp on FORGERY FDC.!! Interesting blog post to read about how easy it is to find forgery.

Nicaragua Einstein stamp F.D.C with Nicaragua Olympic and Gandhi stamp was sold for $113.!! Not sure whether it's GENUINE!!

As you know small countries in the world out source there stamp printing to dealers which provide them stamps for there country need and dealers sell to outside world as a collector item. And this dealers will do different creative printing and following is one of them.!!

There is no value in this kind of stamps as it is a deliberate printing to make error.  In past we had seen this kind of printing (overprinting) from Nicaragua as well as other countries such as Cameroon.

So beware what you collect other wise you will have some valueless item in your collection. (I have one in mine.!!)

So BEWARE what you are collecting and why are you collecting and at what price.!!

Read my following blog post to understand about stamp collection in DECLINE.!!

1) A Hobby in Decline : 1948 Gandhi USED cover case study.!!
2) A Hobby in Decline.!! - Part-2
3) How to invest when philately price is dropping.

If you see stamps are not even selling or selling like 5-10 times lower their value than mentioned in catalog.!!

There is nothing RARE or Scare in philately because this hobby is in downward trend because experienced collectors are loosing interest because value is not appreciating and new collectors are not coming in to this because there are lot of other things to do for them such as playing video games on Nintendo or X-box , social networking on facebook or google+ or  surfing on web through internet or SMS through iphone or android or watch games such as cricket, football or basketball.!!

Only way philately can sustain is to stop cheating in this hobby. Yes CHEATING.!! which is what you will see in order to increase value artificially by inflating the price by SHILL bidding, not paying to seller or mutual understanding cancelling transaction and lot more.

To know more about this kind of activity read my following blog post and think what are the possibilities in cheating, glorification, SHILL bidding, FAKE, Forgery etc.

9) Gandhi SERVICE overprint stamp price fell from $1009 to $1.!!
10) How can you tell that Gandhi SERVICE stamp is FAKE or Forgery ?

I hope all the above will help while making decision in investing stamps and to avoid getting CHEATED.!!

Now don't you think it does NOT make sense STAMP INVESTING!!

Also don't you think it does NOT make sense to collect all thematic stamps because it will keep coming.!!
