Unique cover from Great Britain with Mahatma Gandhi Stamp and 1971 Special Cancellation of British Philatelic Exhibition in London

Hello Gandhi Collectors,

Following is a very unique cover with Great Britain 1969 Mahatma Gandhi Stamp and Special Cancellation of India Study Circle issued during 1971 British Philatelic Exhibition in London from November 3-6, 1971.

On above cover Mahatma Gandhi stamp from Great Britain is used and it is a valid postage stamp before decimal system was introduce in 1972.

After looking other special cancellation issued during BPE in 1971 as well as other years I don't think  that this is FAKE special Cancellation or just Rubber Stamp with Mahatma Gandhi Photo like we saw in 2009/2010 or any forgery like 1969 possible forgery.

The creator of this cover did excellent job by using Mahatma Gandhi stamp on this Special cancellation with India Study Circle and which make sense also.  Think Different.!!

Want to see more cover, special cancellation issued during  BPE then click following link.

After looking  at above link, all  cover cachet and special cancellation were matching for all 4 days.!! I don't think I don't need to do research for this cancellation like I use to do for some suspicious cancellation.

Let us know what do you think.
