India 1948 Telegram Form - Indian cancellations postmarks.

After doing some research on India 1948 Telegram Form it looks like that stamps were not affixed on the Telegram form but still have  Indian cancellations postmarks.

Following are India 1948 Telegram Form with  Indian cancellations postmarks of post office which don't have any stamps on it.

So why we see 1948 Gandhi stamps on Telegram Forms with  Indian cancellations postmarks..!!

To me it's market and demand !!

Which is created artificially by collectors, authors and dealers to make MONEY.!!

(DISCLOSURE : I bought one with Gandhi stamps for high price and still have in my collection.!!! But I don't want you to have piece of paper as philatelic item from India cancellation postmarks.)

Following are 1948 Gandhi stamps on India Telegram forms.

So after looking above forms does it makes sense stamps on Telegram forms.?

You decide.!

Do it think it's  BOGUS ?  (stamp affixed to make money.!!)

My personal opinion about Telegram India forms with 1948 Gandhi stamps is BOGUS.!!

Now it's up to you decide and pay $30 or $50 or $100 on this kind of piece of papers.

Don't you think it's almost impossible, if you are not aware of FORGERY of Zeppelin flight cover Germany.

Any one can create a rubber stamp like a kids project and apply to any piece of postcard .!!

Read my following blog post about FORGERY of Zeppelin flight cover and see what's going on in Zeppelin flight cover Germany.


Recently I saw 1931 Graf Zeppelin Polar Flight cover Germany selling for $340 by ebay seller "gemadastamps" from Oregon , which is similar to forgery I saw which was sold under $5. 

So what are chances of forgery selling as genuine ?

Also in past I wrote blog post about

Rocket Mail Cover ?

India Rocket Mail

Zeppelin Air mail cover : FORGERY is selling as GENUINE ?

Please read it and think what is going on and what are chances.

Do you still trust or believe in rare or unique Gandhi Philatelic material with all kind of different rubber stamps on 1948 Gandhi stamps from India.?

Do you still believe in 1911 First Aerial Mail from Allahabad.?

If answer is yes then read following blog post and think about it again.

In past I saw FAKE Zeppelin Flight covers.!!  or Aero Philately covers and if seller "aozisik" had not mentioned it as FAKE then it will be not even get notice that they are indeed FAKE flight covers for aero philately.

What I learned in 4+ years that as you move from stamps and first day covers you will face more and more FORGERY or BOGUS philatelic material because advance or experienced collectors wants RARE stamps or UNIQUE stamp collecting material, and so you will see more forgery in some unique stamp exhibition also which can bring you medal.

Stamp and FDC will not get you medal.!! so you need to get some rare stamp collecting material which is only way to create forgery and create scare.

Excellent quality in Aero Philately FAKE flight covers if you see different combination of rubber stamps of POSTMARK of different post office as well as CACHET.

This 18 Zeppelin Flight Covers were sold for $50.

If seller did not mentioned FAKE and did SHILL bidding then it will sell like 1911 First Aerial Mail Post from Allahabad and can make lot of money.

Of course there will lot of bidders (Shill) instead of just one in this auction so it really looks like authentic auction and can glorify with # of bidders and # of bids.

In my previous blog post I mentioned about forgery cancellation, unbelievable price in Aero Philately, World First Flight air mail cover - who are/were also Gandhi stamps seller.

Click following link to read my blog post about Aero Philately - First Air Mail Flight Covers - Zeppelin Covers  and you decide whether you really want to be part of this kind of shady collection.

First Aerial Post : India 1911 World 1st AERIAL POST ALLAHABAD

First Aerial Mail Post and Gandhi Stamps material SELLER.


INDIA STAMP FIRST AERIAL POST 1911 ALLAHABAD : Indian Philately Exposed - Part IV

First Aerial Post : Do you really think it's RARE and demands such a high price in philatelic collection? Is it valid in philatelic exhibition if postage stamps used is not valid ? or it's VALUE LESS.

This means that all rubber stamp (postmark and cachet) applied on this First Air Mail Flight Covers - Zeppelin cover, maxicard or postcard are FAKE.

Following all are FAKE rubber stamp of post office of Grafzeppelin, Moscou, Arctique as well as very beautiful cachet on Aero Philately - First Air Mail Flight Covers - Zeppelin Covers.

Do you think above FAKE covers might made it to philatelic museum in order to glorify Aero Philately - First Air Mail Flight Covers - Zeppelin Covers ?

Following is FORGED cachet of First Aerial Post which is also selling as First Air Mail Cover, World First Air Post etc.

Also post office postmark which are not applied on stamps are also forged from Allahabad post office dated 18 February 1911, as well as Sitapur post office.

There is no difference between First Aerial Post, U.P. Exhibition Allahabad 1911 and all of the above rubber stamp postmark and cachet.


Looks like lot of similarities between Gandhi stamps and Air Flight covers, First Flight covers, First Air Mail cover and First  Aerial Mail from Allahabad.

Even Register rubber stamps are FAKE in both.

Above are all bogus RUBBER stamps (which never exist) or forgery which will help future collectors whether they really want to start collecting stamps and philately.!!

Forgery in stamp collection and philatelic material is nothing new. It has been going around since last 150 years since Penny Black first every stamp issued by Great Britain. But the quantity  and quality of forged stamps we see in today's world is unbelievable.

It's hard which one is REAL and which one is FAKE. And if it is on used cover or register cover with forged postmark cancellation it will be impossible for new or regular collector.!!

In Indian stamps and philately specially in Gandhi collection we have seen lot of forgery stamps and philatelic materials, some of them are following.

3) Forged 1948 Gandhi Mourning first day cover.(different way to mourn.!!)

Looks like Gandhi stamps and philatelic material have all kinds of Forgery.!!! including Indian Philatelic items such as 1911 First Aerial Mail from Allahabad and 1854 Queen Victoria stamps.!!

So what are chances of getting this FAKE Aero Philately cover as Genuine covers?

I think if you are new collectors and don't know what's going on behind the doors than you will end up buying it and regret whole your life that Aero Philately - First Air Mail Flight Covers - Zeppelin Covers sucked my money.!!!

So BEWARE when you start collecting  Aero Philately covers - First Air Mail Flight Covers - Zeppelin Covers.

Any way there is not that much interest in Aero Philately covers - First Air Mail Flight Covers - Zeppelin Covers.!!, but it will be good learning experience for Gandhi Stamps Collectors as well Philatelic judges who give medals to Gandhi exhibit so they have something to think about it.

By writing this I am not benefiting at all, but I am getting satisfaction of providing some important information to whole collector community so they don't get cheated.

India Telegram Form - Telegraph - FORGERY - BOGUS philatelic item.!!

 We all know that there are more FORGERY or BOGUS philatelic item in Gandhi stamp collection.

Recently I saw 1948 Telegram Form from India selling for $75.!!

There is no way you can prove this genuine because it will be very very hard to find all information on this India Telegraph form.

It's very easy to make rubber stamp and apply on piece of paper and be claimed as philatelic material or philatelic item.!!

Also this kind of item can be glorified by submitting to any author who is writing Handbooks or Yearbooks or Philatelic website or blog or in philatelic exhibition.!!

So Beware what you are collecting.!!

To me it looks like BOGUS telegram printed paper or photocopy of any old telegram form with FORGED rubber stamp.

Also we had seen lot of BOGUS (never exist) philatelic material in Gandhi stamp collection so chances of this Telegram from India is very very high.

Following are my blog post related to India Telegraph.

1) 1948 Passport punch hole or India Telegram punch hole.


2) King George stamps on India Telegram.


So what do you think about this Telegram India.

PRC China Stamp - 1980 Monkey stamp

 I am wondering how much common is in stamp collection. Whether it's stamps from India or China or it's King Edward or Mao stamps.

Recently I saw PRC China stamp - 1980 Monkey stamp on piece of paper selling for $7.

Don't you think it's easy to make used stamp by making just rubber stamp and apply on piece of paper  with PRC China Stamp - 1980 Monkey stamp.

Also why use genuine stamp if you are making forgery. Use any facsimile stamp (forgery stamp) and make it completely forged any PRC China Stamp - 1980 Monkey stamp.

As per seller this is Facsimile (FORGERY) of  PRC China Stamp - 1980 Monkey stamp .

If seller did not mentioned this and ask for $700 or $7000 than no one will notice that it's FORGERY that PRC China Stamp - 1980 Monkey stamp is Forgery.

We had seen lot of stamp of Mahatma Gandhi on piece of paper. But all is claimed as GENUINE. Also piece of paper is O.H.M.S.!!!

Following are some of them which are selling for $100 - $3000.!!

Don't you think it's easy to make RUBBER stamp and apply on piece of paper and claimed it as used stamp.!!!

Please look at following blog post and read in detail what is happening in stamp collection so you are aware about it.





1) SHILL BIDDING - bid with your own other id or help from relative or friends.
2) FAKE BIDDING - Increase price and if you win don't pay to seller after increasing price.

Please look at the following screenshot of expensive Gandhi Philatelic material sold  and you will think, 

Is Gandhi Stamps are for only RICH people or Is this a real transaction or a way to inflate the price so you will buy same or similar philatelic material it at half price or less thinking you got a great discount.!!

Collectors (Buyer) stay in this hobby if you have following kind of buying power  like ebay buyer "hitlerandgandhi", "blue_guy_1234", "philapragya24" , "echobangla" etc otherwise run away from this hobby and Think Different hobby(it's a game).!!!

Do you really think eBay got commission from this transaction ?

It will be more than $2500 only from eBay + PayPal fees will be extra.!!

Or eBay is also CHEATED by seller not paying commission as they did not get money from buyer.!!

Click above image to see enlarge copy of it so you can see details.

What do you think about this all expensive Gandhi Philatelic material purchase.?

Collectors (Seller) stay in this hobby only if you have above kind of philatelic material such as from drpokiri(aka stampsniper), akhtarkk, barrydavid2005 etc. 

If you don't have this then learn how to sell it at high price and stay in this hobby(it's a game).!!

Study all buyers and sellers activity and then you can play this game of hobby too.!!

Ebay buyer "hitlerandgandhi" from India bought more than 25000 US Dollars worth of Philatelic material mostly Gandhi in less than 30 days.!!

Also in August 2011 he bought some expensive 1948 FDC. Click following link to see what he purchased.

I am not sure who is "hitlerandgandhi" but to me he looks like a very rich person!! who is spending this kind of  offical white money openly in public auction market without any fear of goverment because all this transactions are recorded on ebay and paypal and they keeps this kind of information for 7-15 years or more depending on finiancial transaction for any future inquiry.

Do you think "hitlerandgandhi" is really paying for this item?

After looking all the above sold Gandhi Philatelic material,  Do you think 1948 India Gandhi Stamps are false hope of RICHES? I think so.!!

Again thanks for reading and  please share your thoughts in the comments section.

Also there are lot of cheating such as Forgery stamps, Shill bidding, BOGUS philatelic material  involved in stamps collection.

But now you know my 15 steps to make money on internet.!! and following four blog post will make you expert in making money.!!


Story Behind the most popular stamp issue of Independent India.

 We know how stamps are glorified by glorification in various Handbooks, Stamp exhibition, Philatelic Magazine and by stamp broker who will convince as Alternate investment.

But no one will let you know TRUTH about what is going in collection hobby as it will impact themselves.

Stamp Hobby is declining I never seen before. There are virtually no buyers for your stamp if you try to sell it and this is the case for Gandhi stamps also.

Recently I saw Gibbons stamp Monthly magazine also glorified this  1948 Gandhi stamps of India.

But my personal opinion about this stamp is

  • Most BOGUS (never exist) philatelic material of this stamp with various overprint, rubber stamps as special cancellation, register cover, used cover, FDC etc.
  • Forgery of this stamps are available in plenty.
  • SHILL bidding or FAKE bidding (buyer don't pay to seller) is more than any stamp on eBay or Delcampe auction to increase price.
  • All Philatelic Handbooks, Year Books, Stamp Exhibit, stamp websites etc is glorifying stamp for their personal benefit instead of telling TRUTH to collectors.

Not sure what Gibbons Stamp Monthly magazine is writing about "Story Behind the most popular stamp issue of Independent India."

It will be interesting to see whether they are EXPOSING all FAKE, Forgeries and BOGUS Gandhi Stamps and Philatelic material.!!

Following are some of the BOGUS (NEVER EXIST) material of the most popular stamp issue of Independent India.

1) SPECIMEN stamp in leather folder. ( Emblem of India was used 2+ years in advance before it was declared as EMBLEM.!)


2) OVERPRINT "SERVICE" is BOGUS. It was never printed or approved by Government of India.


To me all OVERPRINT stamps are BOGUS. It was created for FORGERY.!!

So any SPECIMEN or SERVICE overprint is nothing but to makes MONEY.!!

3) Even 10 Rupees SERVICE stamp is BOGUS. It never exist but still sells for $200000.!!


4)  O.H.M.S cover and Piece of Paper. (Looks like Governor General was thinking himself as KING.!!)


5) 1948 Gandhi FDC are nothing but BOGUS except Bombay, Calcutta, Delhi and Madras. All smaller cities ( Kanpur, Lucknow, Pondicherry etc) cancellation are made to make it unique.

It's a BIGGEST SCAM in stamp collection history.!


Above are the some of most BOGUS philatelic issued in stamp collection history.!!

All you see on eBay or Delcampe for Gandhi philately is nothing but FORGERY.

There are more than 500 Gandhi philately items are bogus which I saw on eBay in last 5 years but this are widely glorified in Handbooks and Stamp exhibit.

So BEWARE about the most popular stamp issue of Independent India.

This used most popular stamp issue of Independent India is currently selling under $2 (pair of 2) so does it make sense to collect.!!

Also FORGERY are available widely or ONLY forgery are available which are sold as genuine.!!

Following is forgery stamp. You will not notice if seller don't tell you.

Now following stamps are selling for $5250 and $1400 as genuine.

My personal opinion is that both are FORGERY which are sold as genuine. 

No one had that kind of money in 1948 to invest in block of 4 stamps which were very expensive.

So now you have to decide what is "Story Behind the most popular stamp issue of Independent India."
