India 1991-94

This setenant stamp below is the RARE ONE here, in my opinion.
Sep '91. Exponents of Modern Hindi Literature
Mahadevi Varma & Varsha
Jayshankar Prasad & Kamyani

This stamp is also a RARE indian stamp. The 1994 release on the 80th birth anniversary of the Queen of Ghazals, BEGUM AKHTAR. The reason the stamp is rare is simply because of its non availability. This so happened because the stamp was withdrawn shortly after its issue being printed from water-soluble ink.
The SG (Stanley Gibbons) catalogue worth (as on date) of the used stamp is 5 pounds (~Rs 450)
