Cat. Number If known, from:
(Mac OS Big Sur) HP Deskjet 2654 (1200 DPI, 24-bit Colour) through VueScan 9; Edited with GIMP; Lossless compression with ImageOptim; converted with Pixallon (NCH Software) to 350 DPI with 50% Lossy JPEG Compression

Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Decent condition Penny Red from plate 194, position JL. Two good margins to the left and right, with only a partial encroachment into the design from the other two sides.The gum is slightly ugly with some dirtiness; but the watermark is clear, visible and well centred. The postmark is scarcely visible, but the oval shape places it from being from England and Wales. The numeral starts with “21”, but the last digit is cut off which creates difficulty when it comes to locating it more precisely. A slight ink mark to the left potentially indicates it was part of a duplex. The colour is bright and likely lake-red; the plate number is easily visible. The engraving is good but has suffered the effetcs of ageing. Overall a nice example.
Oval Barred Numeral Cancel: 21?; Partial duplex
Large Crown (Standard)
