A SET of postage stamps depicting Indian freedom icon Mahatma Gandhi have been sold for £500,000 – breaking all previous records for Indian postage – as collectibles from the south Asian country continue to grow in value.

The stamps were sold in a set of four in auction yesterday (19) by Jersey-based dealer Stanley Gibbons to a private collector-investor in Australia.
