One Response to Presentation Album by India Post and Telegraphs-1969


    Wonderful piece of info. The choice of the 43 stamps
    appears great, as they represent almost the best P & T issued
    during 1960s. But, in my opinion P&T issued much better though
    fewer stamps in 1950s. P&T has since issued much-2 beautiful
    stamps in the 70s,80s & 90s. The last decade has been the decade
    of quantity and not of quality. Color Variations, out-of-center,
    misperforations etc. etc…
