To me both of them look same after looking above images. Not sure whether first one was really sold at $1125.!!
This King Edward stamp philatelic material was purchased by eBay id "suratphilatelist" for $158.!!! Another bidder was rthaper(370)
$99 --> 2***n(724)
So what happen to all other bidders who bidded upto $1000.
h***t(1921) ---> $1100 ( eBay id "posthost")
8***i(56) ----> $1050
i***a(195) ----> $1000
Are this bidder not interested anymore.!!! or it's just another GLORIFICATION of Gandhi philatelic material with King Edward stamp, by just increasing price to glorify this Round Table Conference rubber stamp !!
I think so.!! What do you think ?
If you take a look closely buyer e***b(49) bidded for this item from $110 to $1000 in order to win this auction from i**a(195) who bidded from $107.!!
So this 2 bidder increased price in order to win.!!
Not sure whether this was indeed genuine transaction were all paypal and eBay fees were paid by seller or it was a bogus transaction were buyer did not paid and seller cancelled the transaction and got eBay refund for it's fees paid.!!
In past I wrote multiple blog post about how easy it is to make this kind of RUBBER stamp and apply it on any envelope or letterhead or International Reply coupon or receipt.!!
Following is example how to make rubber stamp on www.rubberstamp.net
British India King Edward stamp on International Reply Coupon
Special cancellation on Certificate of Posting Receipt
British India King Edward stamp On piece of Paper
British India King Edward stamp on First Aerial Mail with FORGERY rubber stamp
Forged King Edward stamp with cancellation
British India King George stamp with Gandhi stamp with FORGED overprint and cancellation
FORGED King Edward stamps from British India
Art of Making Money : Philately Greed
Now you decide whether is Genuine or Forgery or Bogus and what is the real value of this kind of cancellation.
I don't have this in my collection because to me it looks only FORGERY is available or chances of BOGUS (not officially issued) are very high as who knows what happen in 1930.!!
We saw what happen in 2009 from Winnenden Germany even with Gandhi philatelic popularity, so chance of BOGUS is very very high.
When it comes to any British India stamps and Philatelic material I always stay away including any Mahatma Gandhi's Life.
It's your money, so you need to decide.
1) Is GANDHI stamp collection hobby a SCAM?
I am not expert and I am in this hobby for 4 years only so you don't have to believe me or trust me. But you can think about it.
