But I also saw another Queen Victoria QV India 1860 telegraph stamp selling for $3600, by seller "stamp_bay" from USA.(Disclosure: In past I bought one Gandhi envelope with him/her.!!)
Do you really think this is stamp is worth $3600.!!
Do you really think it's rare stamp.!!? ( In May 2013, only 2 stamps were for auction.!!)
Recently I saw similar type of QV stamp which is replica or facsimile selling for $7.!! and another was selling for $19000.!!
So what are chances of Queen Victoria QV India 1860 telegraph stamp also replica or facsimile.?
As I mentioned in my previous blog posts that there are more replica stamps then genuine stamps, because it's very hard to find this stamps as mint or even used after 100+ years.
And if you are new collector and don't know about what's going than you will buy it at very high price.!!
So BEWARE what are you going into.
You will also see all kind of activity to make you that this stamps are really selling on eBay at high price, but in reality it's a SHILL bidding or buyer is not paying to seller, as everyone is involved in this SCAM.!!
Following is my previous blog spot which will explain you about how some of the British India stamps of King Edward stamps, King George stamps etc.
Following is one of the most British India stamp sold as genuine on eBay as Mint or Used.!! Chances of getting this in other type of auction is also very high, because there are very less people see that auction.
Also showing and giving is some time different.!!
Seller description of above stamp
But recently I saw similar stamp sold for $811 from Taiwan seller "vivistamp2009" even without mentioning that this is FORGED or GENUINE. Only thing is that SEE THE SCAN.!!
Do you think this is a GENUINE stamp with error.? I don't think so as there are very less quantity available and it will not sell for $800 it might sold for higher price around $2000-$5000 (just my guess).!!
So what next time any seller can make it happen to $5000 by shill bidding (bidding with other account or philatelic friend might help the seller.!!)
I just gave you the point to think that what are the chances of FORGED stamp in British India Pre-Independence specially in King George Stamps and King Edward stamps.
So if you can find Forged 1948 Gandhi stamps and Forged 1992 Bird prey stamp with error then what are the chances of other expensive British India stamps of King George V, King Edward and other Indian stamps which I mentioned in start of the blog post.

So now what do you think about Queen Victoria India 1860 telegraph stamp?
