    Pujara Saheb
    I would like to exchange an error issue from Saudi Arabia. Its a commemorative on Haj that was released some years ago without the price printed on it. The price of that commemorative was two Saudi Riyals which is equivalent to almost Rs.26 today. The said error appeared in a very surprising way, i.e. no price printed on one stamp in a strip and it remained unnoticed for quite some time, was even used by the general public on envelopes with post office seals and it was not withdrawn.

    Dear Mr. Pujara:
    As promised I placed below scanned stamps.
    The first strip shows on the right the denomination SR1
    The second one shows the denomination SR1 only one stamp while on the remaining two is printed only SR and that’s the error.
    The third one as said earlier is used stamp with an error without the denomination printed. It does not have cancellation seal from the post office. This is/was common here. Post offices normally do not seal on the stamp and the same used stamp remains unused.
    I tried to post this on PhilaMirror but could not succeed because of the scanned stamps. Hene sending you on your email address.
    With my regards.

If yes,where I can get it.I collect post independent India stamps.Since it is very difficult to get used stamps and the mint one are sold at exorbitant rates,now busy with Postcrossing/UNESCO Card collection.So I look out for beautiful ,different postcards on our heritage sites for swap.
    By the way I was In Ahmedabad from 96 to 99.Beautiful city with nice people.
