Pt Deendayal Upadhyay stamp with smiling teeth ??




Pt. Deendayal Upadhyay stamp - A variety with teeth 

The reported variety shows the mouth of the personality open with stunning white teeth, the normal variety shows mouth closed. The reported variety is used, with the usual round date stamp at the corner.

Hi !

Here  I share  a report  published in February 2012 issue of Stanley Gibbons "Stamp Monthly", informing an important post independece olive-brown and pale orange Indian stamp issued on 5th May, 1978, commemorating Pt Deendayal Upadhyaya, with denomination 25p. (SG Cat. N0. 888). It is interesting and  readers  must check their collection if they have any such stamp ?? However I doubt the existence of such a stamp. It could also be a manipulation of the existing stamp, which was stuck on the cover and thus was defaced by the post (the name of the post office where it was defaced is not clear from the cancellation). I am thankful to Dr Avinash Jagtap of Switzerland  who sent me scan of this report with the details !!

This is all for this evening….Till Next Post….Have a great time !
