India Modern Definitives

The India Modern Definitives make other very common definitives, with the notable exception of the U.S. first class rate definitives, seem rare by comparison. Below are images of some of these definitives. Each image is a thumbnail leading to a page for that stamp. Through an ebay seller, I was lucky to obtain the Wells Fargo correspondence (partially described in articles 4-introduction, 11-2 Rps Textiles value, and 26-the 0.50 Rp Stork, 1.00 Rp Sitar, and 2.00 Rps Himalayas). I have recently added the first batch of 50 covers to the India Wells Fargo section. I have also authored new articles on the 5.00 Rps Sanchi Stupa and the 10.00 Rps Forest

Article 4: The Wells Fargo Correspondence This correspondence consists of 437 covers from various banks in India to the Wells Fargo Bank in New York mailed during 1981 and 1982. I focus on the definitives that are used most in this correspondence.
Article 11: India 2 Rupees 1980s Textiles Definitive In this article I review examples of the India 2 Rupees Textiles definitives from the Wells Fargo correspondence. I have also included a main page for the postal rates, as well as dedicated pages for usages of one and two, three and four, and six and seven of these stamps on the same cover.
Article 39: India 1949 Definitive High Values These are great definitives. This is one of the early definitive series of independent India.
Article 61: India 10 Rupees Forest High Value Definitive Here is a range of specimens. The control on color, perforation, and paper manufacture for this issue is, to the delight of specialists, poor. Besides the main page, I include a page with two blocks of four, and a page with vertical strips.

Article 119: India 1949 Used High Values The 1949 high values of India stand out as some of the most beautiful definitives of the mid 20th century. Here is a used selection. I show multiples in pages dedicated to three of the values. Quick links: main page, 1 rupee specimens, 5 rupee specimens, and 15 rupee blocks.
