I am pleased to release the data for April 2008 on Post Independence mint stamps and miniature sheets of India for the benefit of collectors, dealers and investors.
 I invite your comments, opinions, and suggestions.

STAMP WATCH
1. The demand for Anna values are getting stronger. Even at this price these stamps looks good for long term.

2. The Rs 2 denomination commemorative MINT issues of 1976-77 will soon be the dark horse. Try to collect this 11 stamps issued now.

JUST FOR THOUGHT
1948 Gandhi FDC is being sold in Indian market around Rs 25 to 35 thousand where as the normal unmounted mint set is being traded anything between Rs 8500 to 10000 a set. I really wonder at this stage the pricing of FDC versus mint set. In my opinion this situation may not last long and the price for the mint set may overtake the price of FDC in the months to come. There may be an argument against my views stating the high prices for FDC is due to smaller quantity of FDC available in the market but donít forget that number of the FDC collectors and the stamp collectors may not be the same.
