It HURT'S too because I paid $80 for piece of paper and I was cheated!! (Money don't grow on tree")
Don't you think it's illegal use of Government of India property by using this kind of forgery rubber stamp.
If they can forged this I am sure they can also forged Indian passport!!
Also there was lot of cheating in bidding when I was trying to buy this by SHILL bidding, FAKE bidding using multiple id to increase the price, as well as second chance offer.
This was one of the way they want to show that there is lot of interest in Gandhi Philatelic material.!!
In past I wrote following blog post so new collectors know what's going on so they don't get cheated like me as they have some thing to know what happened in past instead of just glorified exhibit or handbooks.!!
Please read following blog post to understand what's going on even if you are not collecting Gandhi stamps as "Crow's are black every where" and this might be happening in other thematic collection also. (stamps, coins or any other collectibles)
But recently I saw this selling by eBay seller from USA "drpokiri" and item location in India. (Not sure how this works on eBay as well as Indian/USA taxation purpose).
This was sold for $21.50 which is the lowest I saw in past 4+ years.!!
Now look at the other philatelic material available from "drpokiri"
To me all the following are private (not officially issued cover) so chances of forgery or bogus is very very high.
Please look at it and think about it that this can be also rubber stamp similar to above BOGUS rubber stamp from Nepal whether it's
- 1948 Gandhi FDC from Bombay
- 1911 First AERIAL mail rubber stamp (cachet) from Allahabad
- cover send to Denmark or Czechoslovakia
- Gandhi SERVICE stamp used by Governor General of India.
Don't you think it's easy to make this kind of rubber stamp and sell it as Private FDC or commercial used cover to different countries.
Don't you think it will be classic example of "HOW TO MAKE MONEY ON EBAY" - by selling stamps
BOGUS Rubber stamp of Round Table Conference selling for $255.!!
Do you really think Indian Round Table Conference CDS was actually issued or it's just a rubber stamp which was never issued.
But only one person came to collect mail (Don't you think if 6500 mail were carried in first airplane there will whole Allahabad/Naini/Uttar Pradesh will come to see airplane in 1911).!!
