In past I wrote multiple blog post about Mauritus FORGERY cover so stay away from any Mauritius dual/combo cancellation with 2001 Gandhi stamp and 1969 Centenary of Gandhi birth anniversary stamps, or even any Mauritius philatelic material, because it's nothing but Forgery or BOGUS.
It will be very hard to sort out forgeries and bogus philatelic material in Gandhi thematic collection because it's spread all around same way like other British India philatelic material of King George stamps, King Edward stamps, First Aerial Mail from Allahabad etc.
Also SHILL bidding is way to increase the price.not only in Mauritius Gandhi stamp philatelic material, but also any other philatelic material when price is more than $5.!!
Following is Centenary of Gandhi's visit to Mauritius (1901-2001) FDC with combo of 1969 Mauritius Gandhi stamp with some other stamp which is selling for $78 starting price.!!
It's a great way to make money instead of just selling regular FDC which are available in large quantity. If this was without combo it might sold for $1 or $2 or there might be no buyer.!!!
So in order to make money collectors/dealers will try to come up with idea to make dual combo so to make it rare they will make forgery of rubber stamp of some post office and apply it on FDC.
I can only think dual/combo FDC genuine if there is a special cancellation which is applied on FDC, but still there are chance of both might have forgery.
Following are genuine combo FDC which has special cancellation along with original stamp issued on first day of issue. Both stamp is embossed together with special cancellation issued on same date.
Read following blog posts regarding Mauritius Gandhi stamps and understand what are you buying, how shill bidding is happening etc.

We know all FORGERY and BOGUS going in Gandhi philately as well other BRITISH INDIA Philately such as First Aerial Mail, Queen Victoria stamps from British India, King George stamps from British India, King Edward stamps from British India and lot more.
Following are Forgery or BOGUS special cancellation or postmark from post office, used on Gandhi stamps.
