Recently I saw China Tibet India 1911 register combination cover sold for $3300 by "newby101" from UK.
If you think it's lot of money for anyone.!!
If this mint stamps were sold no one will buy or you cannot ask for this kind of money.
But as it has rubber stamp of YATUNG it was sold for $3300.
Not sure about this China Tibet India stamps cover is genuine or forgery. It will be very very hard to find any info about this. It's just a guessing work.
Let me make sure that I am not claiming this as Forgery or Bogus or even Genuine. It's up to you to decided. I am just expressing my view like Expert Certificate which are not responsible for any thing, even after taking money.!!!
Even stamp EXPERT Certificate are forgery or BOGUS.!! or even easy to make one.!!

But we can definitely guess that this kind of money is good for eBay Shareholders because it will generate lot of money from commission of this kind of high value transaction.!!
But what if eBay is not getting any money from this transaction ?!
Yes what you see on eBay is not always true.!!
Hardly true when it comes to collectible items such as coins or stamps or any other things, because of following.
- SHILL bidding where seller or relative or friend is using other accounts to bid on it to increase price and if they win they will open case with eBay for non payment and eBay will not charge commission to seller.
- Some times SHILL bidder will retract the bid if they reach max bid of other bidder.!!
- FAKE buyer who don't pay to seller and seller will cancel transaction so he/she don't have to pay commission to eBay.
Now let's analyze this transaction.
There were 5 bidders and 6 bids which is very unusual.!!, Usually there will be 20 -50 bids for this kind of price.!!
So do you think collectors bid on this many items.?
Do they have money for 100+ items to spend on hobby like this which is declining worldwide or almost obsolete.!!
Following are some notable SCAM from above blog post which will help you to know what is STAMP COLLECTION!!
