FORGERY OF THE OLDEST INDIAN STAMP....THE RED SCINDE DWARKE POSTAGE STAMP.I have been a stamp collector for 50 odd years.
When my sister and I first combed the streets of Bombay,fifty years agi in search of stamps,we had a roaring time.
For under a pound we amassed stamps collectors would never dream to possess.
However when we did buy our most expensive stamp for Rs 10(or just 13p),the red scinde dwarke embossed 1840 stamp of India,we could only find out it was a fake 30 years later.And gone was our Tenner!!!!
I will continue on how to discern a True from a fake later on.
