- Study of selling forgery as genuine
- Study of second chance offer on eBay.
- How to glorify philatelic material
Reserve for this auction was set $1500, so you see eBay id "leadpsd" bidded 25 minutes before auction end for $1200, $1300 and $1500.
Amazing thing is that this is his first purchase in 4 years.!!!
I got second chance offer for $810.!! Which is almost 45% less.!!
So what do you think about actual price of this postal history first day cover.
$1500 or $810 or $9 !!
Actual price will be $9 if 8th bidder got second chance offer for this FDC with stamps from India !!
But chances of getting forged stamp with rubber stamp is very high when you get second chance offer because when cheating happen it happens everywhere.!!
We had seen lot of forgery in USED cover also and very expensive by SHILL bidding or not paying to seller.!!
|F0RGERY of rubber stamp with Red ink.!!!|
Chances of correct ink cover might be in Museum or selling on eBay!!
My personal opinion is that when any expensive philatelic item from India there are more chances of forgery. Also it's not only India philatelic material but any expensive postal history or event cover philatelic material.!!
Now think what are chances of Forgery with FACSIMILE or REPLICA stamp used on this postal history FDC.?
Now think what are chances of SHILL bidding ?
Now don't you think it's easy to sell forgery material by just applying rubber stamp on it ?
Now think why I got SECOND Chance offer ? even though I was 3rd last bidder!!
Now think how this is one way to Glorify postal history philatelic material ?
So what do you think now about Cheating in Indian stamp collection ?
