None for me still.....

The special postmark from Goa is going to be only this month, I read somewhere. Mail a speed post to yourself, will be a good collectible. :D

Any idea if Goa still has 2019 stamps available in GPO?
Yup. The postmark was given only for five days at Panjim G.P.O till 24th May. Panjim is Goa's only Philatelic bureau.
Yes. The G.P.O. has all the stamps available, even the new release on wandering minstrels and musical instruments. :D

Leopard Cat 5r definitive stamp.
Issued in 2000
Issued in 2000
This is printed in three colors, yellow and black for the cat, and marron brown for the backround. I do not have any other copies to compare the printing to, it is not rescreened though.

Is this imperf known? It appears to come from printer's waste, and the rough tearing lead me to believe it is a non-philatelic commercial usage. :geek:

Yes, I just checked online for a quick search and the imperf version Block of 4 is available with different suppliers with prices from 500-750 INR

Need to check the SG catalog if it is mentioned there too

I’ve seen Imperforate versions of the lower values of these turn up for sale - the rose, deer & otter. So they are not that rare. There are variations of color & perforation shifts also found in this series (either they were careless or everything printed was put up for sale) Interesting to read of the postal forgeries on the image Joy has posted.

The terra-cotta temples is on the calendar now so it’s going to happen sooner or later, it’s been pending for a while I guess - so finally It’s time has come.

Heard talk of the puja stamps - not sure if true, definitely did not hear of the planes :D

It seems a set of 5 stamps in the denomination of Rs.5/- each and a miniature sheet on 'UNESCO World Heritage Sites 3 - Cultural sites' will be issued tomorrow.

Heard more than 2500 were submitted for the competition. :idea:
Not sure if they will reach all philatelic bureaus soon as the competition ended on July 27. Then there would be design selection, printing of stamps, miniature sheets and first day covers. :?

Lovely..and its 5rs too!
I love the fact that they are images chosen from a photography contest. 🥰
The terracota temples stamps looks lovely. Never knew about them till this stamp release. :)

I was so looking forward to the covid stamps :(
Thailand released 1 yesterday.

I think just like gandhi stamps have more buyers..religion themed stamps are popular, esp in India. This maybe why the ram mandir stamps were made into personalised stamps (also, I dont think they can make a comemmorative stamp on a building that hasnt completed construction??). Even if the face value is around 60rs..the sheet costs 500. Im sure even if it were 1000 rs..there will be buyers. 🤷

India has so many amazing animals and birds..AND illustrators..digital and other artists. Wish they were included in the designing stamps 'team'..esp flora fauna ones. The last pink UNESCO fauna stamps (with the exception of snow leopard stamp) left much to be desired. They felt like animal paper cut outs stuck together. 😕

Turns out there are at least two errors in this Independence Day UNESCO sites issue - The Goan church & the Khajuraho temple mentioned on the stamp are not the same as the picture shown 😊😀😆
So grab some of these now - before they are pulled back and corrected 🙂

Regarding errors on UNESCO stamps.

Pathetic.
What's the hurry in issuing new stamps i wonder...

I can ensure you that they have not reached here.
However I have heard that the miniature sheet is available on epost.

P.S. Mr. Hyderabadi can you please send a message to me?
I think you have disabled the messaging option.

Got back from the phila bureau today. They didnt give me both UNESCO independence day AND teracotta temples miniatures.
Both has errors it seems ☹️
Also a friend in coimbatore said he got the teracotta stamps/sheetlet. No mini.
That is sad, let’s hope someone gives us good news in this forum

Tried the epostoffice route for the 2 new ones but inspite of payment completion the order shows the status as incomplete. Their support numbers or emails as mentioned on the site are not responding. Any suggestions please?
