Mahatma Gandhi stamps sold for 500000 pounds at auction in UK

A set of four rare stamps featuring the portrait of Mahatma Gandhi has been sold for record 5 lakh pounds at an auction in the UK.

The seller, Stanley Gibbons said in London that the stamp was sold to an Australian collector for the highest ever price for Indian stamps. The Indian stamps were particularly rare owing to the fact they were in a set of four.

Only 13 of the 1948 Gandhi 10-rupee Purple Brown and Lake ‘Service’ stamps are in circulation, said the seller. He said the recent sale follows that of another Indian philatelic rarity, the famous ‘Four Annas’, which sold in March this year for almost 1.1 lakh pounds.
