And those available such as Philatelic Handbooks have nothing but incorrect information with all kinds of forgery and bogus items.
This handbooks will misguide collectors as well as philatelic judges as it has been glorified with false information.
According to me 90% of Indian Philatelic material is nothing by BOGUS (never exist) but some how it will show up in all kinds of stamp handbooks, philatelic journals and stamp exhibit.
Recently I saw Indian Philatelic item sold for $700 with 1948 Gandhi stamps and King George KGV stamp with 55th National GandhiNagar Conference Jaipur sold by "inddak" with feedback of 317 and eBay member since 2000.
This Indian Philatelic cover has CDS of 19 Dec 1948 which is Sunday and postal department don't work on Sunday.!! (except on 15 August 1948, first time and last time it was open on Sunday when some big cities G.P.O were specially open to issue first stamp of Gandhi).
Also it has slogan cancellation "FREE INDIA STANDS FOR WORLD PEACE".
We know what are all this slogan cancellation such as "Sab Ko Sanmati De Bhagwan", "Truth is God", "SERVICE IS WORSHIP".
So it's nothing but a rubber stamp which are glorified as slogan cancellation or special cancellation or Gandhi Poem or Gandhi Song Cancellation with help of incorrect information in Handbooks, stamp exhibition and online exhibit which takes you in wrong direction.!! (but this is were cheaters wants to see.!!).
Any thing with RUBBER stamp is BOGUS.!!
My FREE opinion (same way like Expert Certificate) this is nothing but BOGUS rubber stamp (special cancellation) of Jaipur Gandhinagar and Bombay R.M.S.
I also don't take any responsibility or liability of my opinion.!!
In past I wrote following blog post of about this Indian Philatelics item. Click to read it.
According to me this Jaipur Gandhinagar cancellation is nothing but BOGUS philatelic material which is glorified by Handbooks and stamp exhibition.
We all know what is Indian Philatelic item with Bombay R.M.S.
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.
Does it make sense to have 2 cancellation from different post office in different states which are about 1000 miles away and it will go through direct Delhi airport instead of Bombay as it will be only 100 miles away.!!
Now if you look at eBay you will think that this is indeed genuine cover which was sold for $700.!!
But there are chances of
- Shill Bidding
- Fake Bidding
- Buyer don't pay to seller.
- Seller and Buyer mutual withdraw bid.
So don't buy eBay stock looking to this huge sale on eBay.!!
Every thing is inflated with CHEATING. First they cheat by making Bogus Indian Philatelic material and then they cheat during auction with one or all of the above method.!!
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 WAS A SUNDAY AND 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.
