Indian Airmail Development - is it real or fake or bogus ?

Is Indian Airmail Development is REAL (Genuine)?

Or Indian Airmail Development just plain BOGUS (never exist) like what we see in Gandhi Collection ?

In past we saw FORGERY of Indian Airmail Development but what are chances of just plain BOGUS?

As per my previous blog post it looks like BOGUS because it's like a Cinderella story.!!!

And after looking all this GANDHI BOGUS philatelic material, Indian Airmail Development nothing but BOGUS.!!

Recently I saw Indian Airmail Development cover from 1911 Allahabad to Naini First Airmail or First Aerial Post sold for $675 by eBay seller "drpokri" from India.

Lot of money for seller as well as eBay shareholders.!!

Do you really think eBay shareholders got money from this sale ?

Only seller and eBay knows about it.!!

I hope it is genuine transaction so shareholders get benefit from this kind of high value selling on eBay. (Disclosure ; I am eBay shareholder in personal as well  as IRA account).

Because chances of FAKE bidding by buyer or SHILL bidding might happen.!!

Do you really think collector has this much money so spend on Indian Airmail Development cover like this ?

Now compare this above cancellation with following FORGERY cancellation and you will not find any difference.

As per SELLER above is FORGED "First Aerial Post" special cancellation someone applied on some old postcard which are available on eBay or stamp shows from dealer at very low price and then affix stamp (of course stamp issued before 1910!!).

It's very easy to make rubber stamp. Just to go rubberstamps.net and upload jpeg image of this cancellation and your special cancellation is ready.!! Following is example of how to create your own postmark cancel on rubberstamps.net website. (click following image to enlarge it.)

Don't you think it's very easy to make rubber stamp and cancel it on any postcard or envelope and you  can get a old used cover.!!!

Lot of money is made with this kind of cancellation by selling Forged/FAKE material using rubber stamps on some postcard or envelope.!! Some time used cover with Receiving Cancel Date Stamp - CDS is alter with this kind of cancellation to make more authentic.!!

Following are screenshot of recently this forgery/fake cancellation was sold for $612 even though seller mentioned it's FORGERY.!! But guess what buyer did not paid for this.!! (This is similiar to Gandhi Philately world.!! where bidder bid very high and don't pay and in this way a glorification of thematic collection is happening.!!)

As per seller "drpokiri" (who also sells expensive Gandhi Philately material)  the rubber stamp appear to be reddish instead of pink. ( Thank God he mentioned this as Forgery otherwise he can also mention that this is uniqure/rare error cancellation instead of forgery.!!).

To me maker of this forgery cancellation on some old postcard did not get perfect ink first time.!! and after that he might got it right INK which might be selling on ebay.!!!!!!!!!!


This forgery card  from eBay seller "drpokiri" was sold  3 times.!! to "banti.6969" for $612, "bcsomani" for #370 and "coolblue" for $202


Read Seller description about Forgery of Aerial Post Cancellation and also who is buyer.

But what surprise me is that buyer "banti.6969" is willing to bid upto $612 and did not paid.!!! even though he was aware of this "Kindly treat as FORGERY" mentioned by seller.

Don't understand why someone wants to bid on Forgery items even stamp collection in DECLINE.!! Please read my following blog post to understand this DECLINE.

1) A Hobby in Decline : 1948 Gandhi USED cover case study.!!
2) A Hobby in Decline.!! - Part-2
3) How to invest when philately price is dropping.

Please read following blog post to see some famous Forgery/FAKE special cancellation (NEVER EXIST or ISSUED)  in Gandhi Philately.

1) Winnenden Massacre First Anniversary Cancellation 2009 from Germany on M.K.Gandhi Birthday.!!  ( Shameless act by greedy collector, will go to any extent to make money.!!)
2) 1948 Gandhi Mourning FDC cancellation

This First Aerial Post Cancellation not completely FAKE (without German Post approval) like Germamy 2009 Gandhi International Non Violence Day but it's forgery some what like Gandhi Mourning FDC cancellation.

Now don't you think similarities between Gandhi Philately and other thematic Philately related to India.!!!

This kind of BOGUS activity is widely used in Stamp collection in order to create unique philatelic material with all kinds of rubber stamps.

It's easy to make rubber stamp and claim it as unique material by even winning the medal.!!

In past I wrote about blog post about  Stamp Collection Hobby SCAM. (click following link to read)


Following are some notable SCAM from above blog post.

Gandhi SERVICE FAKE Stamps and Governor Cancellation  
Fake  used on paper with 1948 Gandhi 1 1/2 Annas SERVICE are available in plenty with Governer Camp PO.!! (Even with SUNDAY cancellation!!)

What is Tibet 1949 register cover with 1948 Gandhi stamps without stamps from Tibet and Indian Embassy of Nepal?
FAKE 1948 Indian Embassy of Nepal cancellation and Independence day of India  

Forged 1948 Gandhi FDC with Indian Embassy of Nepal cancellation!!
Forged 1948 Gandhi Nepal Indian Embassy Cancellation  
FORGED India 1948 Gandhi stamps FDC!!
FAKE 1948 Gandhi  stamps "JAI HIND" Cancellation
OVERPRINT stamp issue from Cameroun, Nicragua & Togo. Does not make sense at all someone printing on stamp by mistake. This is delibrate act.

FAKE Overprint Cameroun, Nicaragua stamps and FDC!! 
Also 1979 - 1980 wrong year printing with UNICEF, Olympics, Einstein , TajMahal. It's nothing but a SCAM to make money by making false assumption of RARE!!

Please read following series of my blog post  to understand what is going on 1948 Gandhi India stamps and compare this with your Indian thematic philately material.

1) 1948 Stamps False hope of Riches?
2) 1948 Gandhi Stamps: Are False hope of Riches - Part II ?
3) 1948 Gandhi Mourning Private FDC : Are False hope of Riches - Part III?
4) 1948 Expensive Gandhi FDC : Are False hope of Riches - Part IV?
5) 1948 Gandhi Stamps Early Usage cover :  Gandhi Stamps Are False hope of Riches - Part V?
6) Maxi Card sold for $5100 with 1948 Gandhi Stamps - False hope of Riches - Part VI?
7) Indian Philately Exposed 
8) Indian Philately Exposed - Part II

As you read this blog post don't you think that FAKE/FORGERY Cancellation is a way for Gandhi Philately including 1948 Gandhi Stamps from India.!! along with highly inflated price and not buying it (not paying it).

Now I am not sure whether following India 1911 First Aerial Post from Allahabad cancellation is GENUINE.!!

Also I am not sure about pricing of this material. Don't think this as reference point but think as some kind of inflated price (shill bidding).

In period of 30 days only you can see 8+ special postmark cancellation of FIRST AERIAL POST from Allahabad was sold on eBay so it's not RARE or UNIQUE. Don't  you surprise that  after 101+ years this shear quantity of cancellation is available on online auction for sale.

So please beware when you buy any Indian Philately material. Looks like all things which happens in Gandhi Philately is happening in all thematic philately related to India such as British India stamps, Queen Victoria stamps , Indian States stamps, First Aerial Posts stamps and ...........!!!!!!!

After looking to this value to me it looks like no one wants to collect stamps in this modern world, because there are lot of others things to do, such as play video games on ipad, xbox, gamecube or on internet surf on web or facebook or lot of other outdoor activity such a hiking, skating, running etc or watch different shows on TV or sports games such as Cricket or Football or Basketball or just talking on smartphone or chating.!!

After all this kind of things you don't get any more extra time to pursue your hobby of stamp collection were not that many people are involved and you feel like retard when you talk to friends.!!

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

This card was again sold for $370. Don't know why someone is willing to buy forgery material.!! They can make one by themselves and can save lot of money.!!

Following are screenshot of it.

It's also sold for 3rd time.!!! for $202.!!

Following are mostly all BOGUS (never exist) or Forgery which will help you to decide about slogan cancellation of Gandhi "Truth is God"

1) India 1911 Allahabad First Aerial Mail Post Commemorative cancel or Special cancellation 


2) India 1937 Rocket Mail Commemorative cancel or Special cancellation 


3) India 1947 Jai Hind Cancellation

India First Day Independence cover Jai Hind Slogan Special Cancellation.

4) 1948 Chalta Dak Ghar Commemorative cancel or Special cancellation 

5) India 1948 Gandhi stamp First Day cover Jai Hind Commemorative cancel or Special cancellation (Biggest Forgery in single individual stamp collection).

6) 1969 Fiji, Luxembourg, Burma, Czech Republic Commemorative cancel or Special cancellation  (wide varieties available)

God knows which is Genuine and Which one is forgery !!

God knows which of this were even issued officially by postal department ?

Don't you think there are multiple rubber stamps from multiple collectors.!!?

Not sure whether this are BOGUS (never issued), but made to handbooks and yearbooks or exhibit.


7) India 1969  "FLAG DAY 1st October Help Ex Servicemen"


8) Bogus (never exist) 2009 Germany Winnenden Commemorative cancel or Special cancellation issued for High School shooting for Non Violence.!! (No respect for who died during this school shooting).

  1. Hi it was very informative post. Thank you for sharing this information. In this era of emailing and texting, a handwritten letter has become outdated but it is one of the most classic ways of expression. The common question that arises at the time of mailing a letter is how many stamps do I need to send a letter?
