Even in the age of emails and WhatsApp, philately has its due recognition, if the exhibits at ongoing Appex-2014 were any indication. The philatelists exhibited their proud collection.
Many rare stamps, some dating back to pre-independence era, are on display at the exhibition. In the recent past a British Guyana stamp was sold for Rs 57 crore at an international auction. A picture of that stamp can also be seen at the exhibition.
The collectors have exhibited their stamps under many themes. Prominent among them was the ‘Penny Black’, the world’s first stamp which came into use on May 6, 1840. The Penny Black brought in the idea of ‘prepaid postage’. Until then, people who received letters had to pay for them.
It is on display at the boards. Another interesting stamp is: a commemorative stamp released in 2011. The government released a stamp on Khadi to coincide with Indipex 2011.
