At the Gärtner Auction September 2011 I noted following 2 lots.

Lot 2010:
1904, 1 A. blue (deeply inked), imperforate, local paper, setting 15, a block of four on reverse of complete telegram, scarce thus. (M), Estimate Euro 80.—

Lot 2015:
1917/18, 4 A. dark bluish green (deeply inked), a corner margin block of four on reverse of complete telegram, scarce thus (M). Estimate Euro 120.—

For me the blocks of 4 do not make any sense, also what makes me suspicious, the postmark doe not tie the stamps on the paper.

What is your opinion?

The 1 Anna-block is telegraphically cancelled Birganj (Hellrigl-No. T3). On the telegram is a handwritten date: 011/9/31 This is about Jan. 14, 1955 AD.

The 4 Anna-block is also telegraphically cancelled Birganj (Hellrigl-No. T3).

May be they are philatelic maculatures of the 50s?

I would not even call it maculatures, but enhancements made to fool inexperienced buyers. It is just surprising why reputed auction houses are offering such items.

I guess they will not sell also in that auction. It is a disappointing behaviour from the auction house.

Rainer, I agree with you. I think they do not know what they are offering.
That happens sometimes…Thumbs Down

This time, the one with the 4 Anna green Block of four was sold for Euro 110 plus fees and the one with the blue stamps for Euro 80 plus fees! Angry

Yes, you can see the result by clicking on the links I posted 02 January 2012.
OK, what can you do? Now anybody is happy - at least the consignor Wink
