I read that someone bought this stamp for $205,000 .!!
Even used cover of Rajagopalachari was available for auction with starting price of 50,000 euros.
And there are 1000's of overprint SERVICE stamp on piece of paper and some with BPA certification.!!
Every stamp has a story and some are genuine and some are fabricated. It's upto you to decide what is the real story.!
- Governor General selling stamps for double the value for relief backward caste!! (Any record of this with government, how many stamps were sold and were money was used ?)
- Conflicting date of Gandhi SERVICE stamp brought in use. 15th August 1948 or 13th August 1949 by C. N.Chandra.
- Depending on Jal Copper to knows quantity of overprint SERVICE stamps.
- Only 100 stamps (10 Rupees) overprinted SERVICE. (2 sheets out of 250000).
- Why 55 stamps out of 100 were given to philatelic museum of Delhi(One sheet of 50 overprint stamps and stripe of 5)
- Why Four stamps(out of remaining 45) were send to Royal collection in England even after 200+ years of ruling India and fighting very hard for Independence.!!(and that also from Freedom fighter.!)
- Don't you think Governor General has important things to do after Independence instead of collecting 3 annas, 7 annas , 25 annas and 20 rupees.!!(to double the face value)!!
- No one knows when overprint SERVICE was done.!! We have to believe to C.N. Chandra document published in 1951 in philatelic journal and start believing SERVICE overprint in 1948.!!
- Why do we have to believe Jal Copper for quantity of stamps with overprint SERVICE.
- Why only 100 stamps overprint instead of 1000 or 2000 or 3000 !! (To make least printed stamp.!!)
- Don't you think in order to make more authentic, genuine and rare it was given to philatelic museum in Delhi.!! 55 stamps out of 100.!! (just send them and they will display it.!,) (I hope they delhi musuem have proper documentation from Governor General, on OHMS letterhead.!!.).
- To make more valuable and real send it to Royal Collection in England.! (Museum or collectors don't care if you send any thing.!!).
In my previous blog post I wrote about Gandhi SERVICE stamp is selling on eBay and other auction houses even though it was specially made for Rajagopalchari.!! How this is possible.
On top of that we are reading that this stamp was sold for world record price for modern issued stamp for $205000.!! so it will be hard to believe all the above information.!! (click to see the google search query).
SERVICE stamp (overprint).
- Jal Cooper is the only one who knows the quantity of SERVICE stamp.!
- Actual usage date (overprint date) of this SERVICE is authenticate by collector.!!
