Fair to Good
Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Plate 215, position GI, Penny Red with a oval barred numeral cancel. The face has one large margin to the bottom, and one thin margin to the right. The design is ever so slightly cut on the other edges. The front has some ageing to the details and parts cannot be made out. Other then that the colour is good and the plate number can be made out fairly easily. The postmark is hard to make out as its either worn or poorly printed. It a two-part oval barred numeral cancel with the top letter being “W” and the lower digits being made up of a “4” and another, indeterminante numeral. Either way we can narrow down its use to the London West district at the very least. The reverse is in decent conditions, although it does suffer from multiple hinged. A helpful previous owner has also noted the plate number on the back. The watermark is easily visible. Besides this perforations are in excellent condition, and there aren’t a great deal of other major faults.
Oval Barred Numeral Cancel: W/4?
Large Crown (Standard)
