Young India Newspaper edited by Gandhi.

Recently I saw lot of 67 Young India Newspaper edited by Gandhi, sold for $157 with 3 bidders and 3 bids.!!

Which means $3 per Young India Newspaper edited by Gandhi.

But if you see sometimes it's selling for killing price of  Young India Newspaper edited by Gandhi.

So if this is very expensive then why only 3 bidders bid on this.

Now if you see following screenshot you will be surprised that Young India Newspaper edited by Gandhi was sold from $2000 - $200 by eBay seller "sweet-again"

Yes just for one copy of Young India Newspaper edited by Gandhi.!!

So what do you think about Young India Newspaper edited by Gandhi. ?

Are this GENUINE ?

Are this Re-print ?

Are Re-print selling as Genuine ?

Do you think after this many years there are still this many quantity in public hand.!!



India Coin Collections - Decimal Coin set - How to INCREASE price on eBay

I was just looking India coin collection on eBay and I was surprised that in coin collection there is also CHEATING !!

Same like what we see in stamp collection Cheating.!!

Buyer increase price and don't pay.!!

Recently 1962 Republic of India Decimal coin set proof was sold for $2247 by eBay seller "pmandmore" from New Jersey, USA.

Looking to price it looks like very valuable coin collection. It has appreciated lot if you compare original price of $2-$3 ( 13-14 Rupees coin) so seller has to pay lot of Capital Gain tax  to US Treasury if it was sold for $2247.

It's lot of appreciation !!

To me it looks like ARTIFICIALLY price increase by fake bidders who are not interested to buy to increase price or by SHILL bidding.

To me this is valued less than $50 if you are Indian coin collector and this is missing in your portfolio as this are not RARE coins.!!

I might not even pay $10 for this Decimal Coin set.!!

To me folder don't even look GENUINE. It's without any details such as EMBLEM of India, Details of Coins, Year it was issued etc.

Click this link to see GENUINE Proof Set.  (or scroll all the way to bottom of this blog post)

(In Gandhi stamp collection, they were leather folder using EMBLEM of India in 1948 even before it was introduce in 1951.!!)

Also eBay lost commission of almost $220 from this transaction as seller has to cancel this transaction.!!

Also US treasury lost $500-$700 on this transaction only on capital gain tax and New Jersey state lost sales tax on this transaction.!!

Now this is for sale again for $2300.!!! ($53 more than previous bidding.!!).

Why not seller reducing price to $2222 (2nd last bid) or $2200 so loser (2nd # bidder) can buy it.!!

Why 2nd or 3rd bidder are not buying it using Best Offer.!!!

Because they don't want to.!!!

Don't you see similarity between stamp and coin collections.!!

I can see that.

  • Bidders (buyer) increase price and don't pay to seller.
  • Chances of SHILL bidding ( increasing price with help from relatives, friends or own other id)  is also higher if you look at # of bids by this bidders.

There were 12 bidders and 19 bids on this auction. (all details are below with screen shot).

e**e(1) was winner but did not paid
s***s(125) was loser - but he is bidding of 44 items with 144 bids and 27 bid retraction in 30 days.!!
_***u(2200) was 2nd loser - but he is bidding on 625 items with 751 bids in 30 days!!

So what this indicates to you.!!

Are 2nd and 3rd loser really wants to buy this item.!!! I don't think so.!!

Bidding on 625 items in 30 days, does not make sense.!!

They are just increasing price.!!

This is exactly what's going in stamp collection.

Still available for $2300.

Stamp Expertising Certificate - Penny Black - Queen Victoria stamps - Forgery stamps selling as Genuine ?

The Penny Black is Queen Victoria stamp was the world's first adhesive postage stamp used in a public postal system. It first was issued in Great Britain on 1 May 1840, for official use from 6 May of that year.

Look at following stamps and can you make any difference. One is forgery and other is genuine.

Genuine might be forgery also.!!

It's very hard to make difference because it's easy to print the stamps in some eastern European countries.!!

One was sold for $7000 and one is selling for $6.!!

Following are Forgery stamps which as sold for $5-6 as replica stamps or facsimile stamps. Now you just buy it and you can  start selling as genuine.!!

To make it more genuine start SHILL bidding.!! (Create another id and bid on it.!!)

Shill bidding will also increase price and # of bidders and # of bids so new collectors who are not aware of this tricks or technique will think it's really worth it to invest in stamps as lot of bidders are bidding it.!!

If SHILL bidding win auction then seller will open case with ebay to avoid to pay commission.

So what do you think selling above Replica stamps (Forgery stamps) as GENUINE and make lot of money !!

Don't you think you can sell it for $7000 like following and make money on this kind of replica stamps.

Click following link to read more about that $7000 selling of Penny Black.


But you can still make lot of money if you can come up with Expertising Certificate.

It's not that hard to make one.

i.e. print one with any name and address.

There is no expertising of expertization certificate!!

I created one for myself for BOGUS (never existed) philatelic material and declare it as GENUINE.!!

Want to know how much you can make with Experitization Certificate then see following images.

You will be surprised .!!

Penny Black stamp philatelic material selling from $127000, $92000,  $67000 with BPA Expert Certificate.!!

BPA Expert Certificate are same like USPA Expert Certificate.!!

Let me make sure any one can print stamp EXPERT Certificate. You don't need to forged, Just print it and fill the details.

Even stamp Expert Certificate are forged or printed with some famous stamp expert society.!!

Following are two stamp expertization certificate which were FORGED by using photoshop and remove the original content of The Royal Philatelic Society Expert committe issued certificate and reused it for BOGUS special cancellation for Round Table Conference and Gandhi SERVICE stamp from India which never issued.

I think Expert Certificate is best way to make any BOGUS stamps or philatelic material as GENUINE.!!

Same way I did with Germany 2009 Special Cancellation philatelic material.!!

So can you make some money by selling Penny Black.!!

But make sure you still have to pay Capital Gain Tax, Sales Tax, VAT etc even though forgery stamps are sold as genuine because government cares about gain on selling price.!!!



Penny Black - GB 1840 stamps of Queen Victoria - QV stamp

Recently I saw  Penny Black - GB 1840 stamps of Queen Victoria - QV stamp sold for $7100 by eBay seller "collectstamps" from UK.

But stamp location is USA.!!

USA or UK ?

If it is bought by UK buyer then he/she don't have to pay VAT.!!!

Also not sure how Capital Gain Tax rules will apply.!!

Now if you look at there were 61 bids for this auction from 15 bidders.!!

Also it was sold 1/4 price of catalog value.!!

But what are chance of this stamp as FORGERY ?

What are chance of this  SHILL bidding or FAKE bidding were buyer  wins auction and don't pay.

What are chance of increasing the price were bidders increase price so there stamp collection price increases.

What are chance of SHILL bidding where some relatives or philatelic friends or with buyer's other id bidded on this item to increase price or might win the auction.

What are chance of seller cancelling the eBay transaction ?

Do anyone collect stamps ?
