Gandhi 1969 - One Of A Kind - Hungary - Imperforate used on cover
To commemorate the centenary of Birth of Gandhi, Hungary was one of the countries that had issued a postage stamp on Gandhi.
The attached example is rare usage of the imperforate on cover. The stamp itself is quite common and does not command a premium unlike the one from Germany. One can buy this stamp of ebay for less than US $10.
This cover recently appeared in an auction in Hungary and sold for approx US$ 400.
Priced on a moderately higher side, but a unique cover that could be very nice to have in one's collection.
It seems there is only one sheet of 60 error stamps known to exist. This is the only known use on a cover which is extremely rare. Recently a certified copy of the error stamp showed up on ebay for Euros 2222.22 which is about US $2685.00
