Thought of sharing this on the current thread too

Special cover issued during a coin exhibition hosted in Pune by Numismatic Society of Maharashtra. Stamped as 4th May 2002 but the stamp was not issued until 10th August 2002. The stamped date seems to be incorrect.

Stamps: Issued by India on 10th August 2002 commemorating Sant Tukaram
SG: IN 2080
