Silence in the face of adversity is the father of complicity and collusion, the first cousins of conspiracy..

" ...Nawanagar ..."

While some may be satisfied to know where to mount
the stamp, others might wonder a bit more about such
a place and its apparently strange name.

".... Nawanagar was an Indian princely state in the historical Halar region, located on the southern shores of the Gulf of Kutch. It was ruled by the Jadeja dynasty from its formation in c 1540 until 1948 when it became a part of newly formed India. The city is now known as Jamnagar. It had an area of 3,791 square miles (9,820 km2) and a population estimated at 336,779 in 1901. Its rulers, who used the title of "Jam Saheb" were Samma (tribe) of the same clan as the Rao of Kutch.They were entitled to a 13-gun salute. The state flag was a rectangular red flag with a white elephant, near and facing the hoist. During the British Raj, the state was part of the Kathiawar Agency, within the Gujarat Division of Bombay Presidency.>>>"

' ...The state had a pearl fishery and much of its wealth came from this. Nawanagar is also famous for its former ruler Jam Saheb Ranjitsinhji (died 1933), who was a famous cricket player at Cambridge in England before his accession to the throne. ..."
From Wikipedia
In 1964 I sailed on the SS Edgar Luckenbach to India
and Ceylon, stopping at several ports on the Mombai
(West) coast as well as two or three on the Calcutta side.
Other than Cochin and Visakpatnam, I do not recall the names
but one port may have been within Nawanagar under it
changed name.
I will say that most of the people seemed quite friendly.

re: can someone i.d. this

i had never heard of this state, nor seen one of its stamps

yesterday, i was ID'g stamps and figured it was likely an Indian Feudatory stamp, and just kept strolling through the states until I found a picture.

it was Nawanager 13.

I recognized the name, came back here, and BINGO, as they say in Nawanager. The discussion here didn't help me ID the stamp, but the name was instantly recognizable. And, in fact, I didn't realize the stamps pictured here included #13.
