It's very RARE as you will only see most of the FDC with BOMBAY cancellation.
According to me (you don't have believe me) this RARE means is nothing but BOGUS(never exist).
TO ME IT ALL 1948 Gandhi First Date CANCELLATION from various cities ARE FORGERY OR BOGUS (except Bombay/Delhi/Chennai/Calcutta) BECAUSE OF DEMAND AND GLORIFICATION done by various online Gandhi stamp exhibit, Gandhi Stamp exhibition and stamp HANDBOOK which gives false information about stamp collection.
Following is taken from previous blog post
Is Gandhi stamps all about FORGERY ?
Now let's compare above cancellation with other rubber stamp (cancellation) issued (or made).
Following will explain you why First Date Cancellation from various cities of India are BOGUS.
1) G.P.O missing on Simla, Nagpur and Shillong. WHY ? ( Genuine or BOGUS or Forgery)
2) Alphabet type and size : Shillong, Delhi, New Delhi
3) Shapes of special cancellation (Madras)
4) Is it AUG or AUGUST.
5) Compare lines and size inside the cancellation
6) Compare Hindi languague alphabet "जय हिन्द"
7) All kinds of different things you can think and compare.!!
But there are more forgeries of this cancellation than any cancellation in stamp collection history.!!
Forgers have not only manufactured stamps for the philatelic market, they have added forged cancellations to those stamps.
Forged cancellations have also be applied to genuine stamps, in cases where the stamps are worth much more postally used. In addition, where rare cancellations are desired by collectors, those cancellations have also been forged.
Cancellations also may be used to prove that certain philatelic items are genuine. For example, forgers have fabricated many supposedly valuable postal covers by adding genuine stamps and forged postal markings to pre-stamp covers. (From Wikipedia)
In this forgery cancellation, it has been have push to collect cancellation from different post office in India.!!
So forger created for you cancellation from Simla, Patna, Allahabad, Poona, Nagpur, Kanpur, Pondicherry, Calcutta, Bombay and lot more hiding in someone collection.!!
So what do you think about Allahabad stamps ?
Also what do you think about online Gandhi stamp exhibit, Gandhi Stamp exhibition and stamp HANDBOOK. ?
Can you believe them ?
