India 1854 stamp - Queen Victoria stamps - QV stamp - World's number one Forgery stamps

India 1854 stamp was sold for $8300 by eBay seller "matthijs_philatelie"  from Belgium.

Do you really think this is very valuable stamp and it is sold for $8300 ?

If you think it's lot of money to be invested in stamp when no one collect stamps anymore.!!

But it's generating money everyone.
  • eBay get commission from this transaction (about 10% = $800)
  • VAT for EU (about 20 % = $1600)
  • PayPal (about 2-3% = $150)
  • Belgium government will get Capital Gain TAX on profit (about $1500 - 2000)
  • Seller "matthijs_philatelie" will get rest of it (about $5000)

Now do  you think all of them are making (getting) money ?
  • What if SHILL bidding happens on this transaction and buyer did not paid to seller ? (In this transaction it looks like it, because bidders are very questionable, but it's very hard to tell.!)
  • Seller cancel transaction if buyer did not paid or mutual understanding ?
I had seen lot of SHILL bidding in stamp collection to increase price to look like stamps are
  • for Investment
  • still there is lot of interest in stamp collection
  • to increase price so they can get more money

But to me all this pricing is nothing but FALSE HOPES OF RICHES.!!!

Nobody is making money as I think everything is BOGUS.!!

Also not sure whether stamp is GENUINE because there are more forgery of 1854 stamps than any stamps in the world.!!! (Most FORGERY stamp in world.).

Now let's do see some point to be noted.

  • "English India" description does not make sense.
  • There were 7 bidders and 34 bids on it.!!

Now let's see 30-Day Summary of bidders and think whether this high price sense.

Look at the # of bids this bidder are trying to bid on # of items.

To me it looks like they are not collectors but traders.!!!

Total bids:  257
Items bid on:  131
Bid activity (%) with this seller:  42%

i**i (768)
Total bids:  38
Items bid on:  28
Bid activity (%) with this seller:  100%

----> What this indicates ? ( bidder is only bidding with just one seller.!!)
-----> 28 items from one seller only ?

Do you think it's SHILL bidding ?

Following Gandhi stamps, King George stamp, King Edward stamp, Queen Victoria stamp and stamps of China are Forgery stamps selling as Replica or Facsimile or copy.!!

Here forged stamps seller are not making money. They are just selling as forged items so they make money under $5.

But when this forged stamps is sold as GENUINE, by certain dealers they are making tons of money.!! Like we saw $1009 for Gandhi SERVICE stamp and certain high priced items from British India and China.

Following Mao stamps of China are forged stamps, which might be used on covers or might be selling as genuine stamps or as a used stamps. for 100-150 times more.!!

Following are some of the USED or Mint stamp sold for $2000 -$2500!! What do you think it's a Genuine stamps or forged stamps are sold after lot of bidding.!!!

Following are FORGED King George stamps from British India, Bermuda or any other stamps where British ruled till 1940!!

Following are FORGED queen victoria stamps from India as well as other countries. Chances of getting this stamps as Mint or used with different TYPE of cancel are very high.!!

BIDDERS!! "hitlerandgandhi" just to glorify Gandhi stamps they increase price of 1948 Gandhi FDC and Used covers.!!! (Images are not enough to understand this so read following blog posts.!!)

I am not expert and I am in this hobby for 4 years only so you don't have to believe me or trust me. But you can think about it. There are more experts with 20-30-40-50 years sitting around with stamp hobby and there are expertizing certificate which might help you.

If you don't want to go through all this don't think as Investment and think as "Philately Greed" and you will be SAFE.

I think collector, dealers, seller, forger will do anything for money such as making BOGUS cancellation from Winnenden to celebrate non-violence for school shooting or plane crash cover, forged 1948 stamps,  Nepal Indian Embassy cancellation, Gandhi SERVICE stamp with forged Sunday cancellation, letter reaching after 2 years or reaching in 3 days from India to France by removing stamps and black ink of rubber stamp etc.

It's nothing new. In stamp collection it has been going on 160+ years since Penny Black. But counterfeit or forgery is going on since 700 B.C. ( 2500+ years).

Don't you think it's a "PHILATELIC GREED"!!
