Ravi Somani Deals in All British Time Stamp Collection, Coins Collection
"Stamps are an abstruse form of investment," says Ravi Somani, the numismatist and a philatelist dealing in rare stamps, unique autographs, coins and paper money collection. Thus, it is not startling that a successful Indian investor realizes collection of stamps and ancestral coins as not just a hobby, but a way to make large fortune whereas other investment sources proffer unstable proceeds.
The compilation and examination of different postage stamps became famous in the 19th Century. It came to be called as philately which has been drawn from the Greek word, “ateleia” which means, exemption from tax.
Indian trade in postage stamps contributes to the escalation and progress of philately in India. According to Ravi Somani,the minimum appreciation one can get on a unique stamp is 15 to 20% per year,in accordance to the standard stamp catalogues. Thus, a philatelist may not fear of losing any money. He will always be benefited. Ravi Somani has a display of his rare stamps, issued by the Britishers, before Independence. He believes in sharing his knowledge and collection with the upcoming collectors.
