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

I am not really that expert but will try my best.
From this week the Philately counter will be open for only one (Tuesday) or two (Tuesday and Friday) days each week. I will confirm and let you know. From Saturday the cancellation is available at Margao for four days.

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
