As per following new paper or magazine or philately handbook or yearbook DELHI post office was closed.!!
Also as per article they did not even back dated it.!!
So it's nothing but BOGUS rubber stamp which all of us (collectors, authors, dealers) call it as slogan cancellation.!!
Even it's rare no one is willing to pay $2.!! So not sure what it is ? Following is seller description. Can you beleive that this is
VERY RARE PIECE OF POSTAL HISTORY.
INDIA 15 AUGUST 1947 COVER WITH SPECIAL JAI HIND CANCELLATION.
THIS COVER IS VERY RARE, PLEASE READ WHAT IT SAYS IN THE NEWSPAPER CUTTING. 15 AUGUST 1947 the office was closed THERE WERE MANY PEOPLE DISAPPOINTED FOR NOT GETTING THIS CANCELLATION FOR THEIR COLLECTION. BY THE WAY THIS NEWSPAPER CUTTING IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE SALE..
If New Delhi G.P.O was closed then how come SHILLONG post office was open.!!
So don't you think it's common practice to create this kind of RUBBER stamp and sell it as Special cancellation or Slogan Cancellation to make money.!!!
If you see this was sold for $15.!!!
So don't try to get unique slogan or special cancellation or Used cover but it's nothing but a SCAM.
