India:Different Types of Folder\’s-1

\"\"By Sudhir Jain

All are aware that at the time of issue of every commemorative stamp, a folder (brochure) is also issued. This folder contains details of the stamp and description of the subject of the \"\"stamp. There is no fixed size or design of these folders. Folders have been issued in many designs. I will display some of these interesting folders here in a series.

To start with, I as displaying two folders, first published on 26-1-1966 on Shri Lal Bahadur Shashtri and second issued on  11-6-1969 on Dr. Zakir Husain.Both these are actually booklets of 7\” X 9.5\” size having 16 pages each containing various photographs and reproduction of Gazette of India in which news of sad demise of these leaders were published. Cover pages of both these booklets are exhibited here.

    Thanks for the folders-so full of info yet (Where to keep item?) for
    stamp collectors. I personally have an office-file full of blank unfolded sheets issued between 1980-86. While the folded ones lie here & there.
    These days the info-card goes inside the FDC.
    I have a 1994 Satyajit Ray (Gate) Folder. Is it the biggest ever issued?
    Please show it, for all the readers Jain Sahib!


    What’s wrong? My 2 & a half days old comment regarding folders
    is still awaiting moderation…

    Thanks Sir. I will certainly do the same.

    A most welcome series. This will enable collectors to build a collection on folders which are normally issues in two formats – a commemorative affixed on the front page and cancelled with the event seal and just plain folder. It would totally depend on how much the pocket permits. I suggest a collector must have, IF POCKET PERMITS, folders cancelled and plain as well as FDCs.
