Great Treasure For Sale....................................
Dear all Philatelic Friends, Here are some rare Postcards from collection of my friend Joshua Patnigere from Mumbai. He has got many postcards sent from Great Britain to India in the early 1900s with stamps affixed on them. His Grandmother handed over these postcards and British India Stamps from 1910 onwards. Some of them are hundred years old and remind People of a bygone era.
Mr. Joshua is planning to sale some of the postcards and Stamps. Interested Philatelist and collectors may contact Mr. Joshua Patnigere on his email id or Mobile No.
