Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Very clean example of a Penny Red from plate 207, position E, with two large margins to the right and top. The perforations cut through the print from the other two sides, but not by a significant degree. Whilst used the postmark is borderline invisible, but roughly appears to be a London District barred numeral cancel. Because of the faintness, the engraving detail is fairly well visible; the plate number is also easy to see without the aid of magnification. The gum is naturally missing, and the stamp has been hinged in the past. The watermark is very clear by eye. A previous owner has helpfully scribbled the plate number on the back too. Lastly the perforations are decent although all are shorter then what would perhaps be liked.
Very faint mark: unknown.
Large Crown (Standard)
