Stamps (Philately)/First day cover dt 26 jan 1950


Among the old papers of may father I recently found a First day cover of 26 Jan 1950, with a stamp of the same event franked on same date at GPO Mumbai. I would like to know what it will be worth.

Dear Viswanathan,
Thanks for contacting me for your query. First of all I would like to inform you that I do not provide any information regarding valuation of any kind of philatelic material as I am not a valuer or dealer. For your information FDC of 26th Jan 1950 is not very scare and also not very expensive.
