India:Stamps without FDCs (1)

\"\"\"\"By Sudhir Jain

In India few commemorative stamps were released without their First Day Cover\’s.Most of them were released during 1947-1955.In 1953 a stamp on Railway centenary was released without official FDC.Philatelists used it as an creative opportunity and prepare beautiful Private FDCs.Cancellations of different philatelic bureaus were also different.

    Indian Railway Centenary.Com. Stamp-Issued on 16.04.1953 was
    issued in a booklet form.A block of four stamps duly cancelled with a design of Diesel Locomotive and in the third fold design of the Special cancellation is printed.A write up ‘Indian Railway commemorates a century of progress of the Indian Rail.There are many countries who have brought out special
    postage stamps with railroads as there themes.The stamp is five pointed water marks.’
    I have used its booklet in my frame INDIAN RAILWAYES.


    More recently, 1989 pin code for fast mail 60p stamp & 1995
    communal harmony stamps were issued without Covers from
    India Post.
    Both beautifully designed stamps, most stamp lovers might agree!

    What’s wrong with Philamirror. Not running properly on IE9.

    I really love this site. I have it bookmarked. The information on
    the subject of the stamps is something rarely available unless you
    buy directly through the foreign postal service. And I am particularly
    happy about having issue dates. That let’s me know when I should
    start to wonder if I missed the listing in Linns/Scotts monthly catalog

    I don’t know if you deal with FDC’s but I would like to know if FDC’s
    are available. I’m not a real collector of FDCs but my son died at a
    young age and I collect FDCs that were printed on his birthday or
    his death date and give them to his daughter who also has a fascination
    with stamps.

  8. Sudhir Jain says:

    Dear Mr. Lee,
    Please inform the date of birth and date of death of your son so that I can check if there was any FDC on that dates.

    to send it to you.
