My personal opinion about this Jai Hind cancellation from Bombay R.M.S is BOGUS.!!
Not forgery but bogus because there was no Jai Hind slogan cancellation from BOMBAY R.M.S.
In past I wrote multiple blog posts about FORGERY or BOGUS philatelic material with BOMBAY R.M.S so this is one more addition in that.
Want to know more about BOMBAY R.M.S then click following links and make sure you read it before you read this blog post.
Even big post office never issued this slogan special cancellation so there is not way R.M.S post office will issue this kind of slogan cancellation.
It's just a rubber stamp which we all calling it as SLOGAN special cancellation issued on 15th August 1947 on first day of India Independence.
Following article will give you some idea that there was no Jai Hind cancellation except false propaganda by some collectors or dealers during that time to make money.
Even post office in capital of India was closed and did not even backdated so how come a R.M.S (Railway Mail Service) issue this kind of slogan cancellation.
After some time they will introduce this in to market and their philatelic friends will some medals also.
In 2009 this kind of BOGUS cancellation came to market with certain news letter spreading word about it that there was special cancellation from Winnenden Germany on October 2nd to celebrate Non-Violence day in memory of High School shooting in that town.!!
Even some famous collectors won Medal with this kind of BOGUS rubber stamp.!!
You can read that blog post and think what are possibilities.
FAKE Gandhi postmark cancel from Germany on 2nd October 2009 ???
It's back again. FAKE Winnenden Germany 2009 Gandhi Special Postmark for sale made to protest against Massacre in High School.!!
After reading above two blog post what do you think about Bombay R.M.S 1947 First Day Cover India
This was sold for $118.!!
It's lot of money for eBay shareholder because they will get good commission from this transaction, if it is genuine transaction.!!
Chances of eBay shareholder not getting benefit of this transaction is very high because it might be Shill bidding or buyer did not pay to seller or Seller and Buyer mutually withdraw bid and lot of other possibilities.!!
