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)
