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:
Plate 213, position TD, Penny Red with two large margins, and two edges where the perforations cut the design. A fairly good reference example as the engraving is clear and the detail highly evident - especially on the portrait of Queen Victoria. The plate number is fairly easy to spot, although magnification was required to confirm. The postmark is at the top right, and consists of a fraction of a barred cancel - thus origin cannot be determined. The reverse is clean and previously hinged. The watermark is easily visible and very offset from the centre - enough so that the cross upon the Crown is cut off. The perforations are all in good condition with minimal faults. Overall a nice example.
Barred Cancel: unknown, partial
Large Crown (Standard)
