Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Penny Red from plate 216, position OL. Generally good condition with a few faults. The face, while a good colour, does suffer from a unknown blemish that has tarnished the surface. The print is fairly well centred with one good margin, but could be considered ugly. The postmark seems to be a tall, two-part, type of barred numeral cancel which were seen with the London Offices. Exact identifications of the numerals and letters is, however, difficult - if not impossible - due to it having been poorly stamped. The reverse shows some signs of ageing, with the surface blackened slightly. The watermark is very clear, but unattractive. it has in the long past been hinged and what remains has taken on an unsightly appearance. A previous owner has written the plate number on the back.
Oval Barred Two-part Numeral Cancel: Unknown
Large Crown (Standard)
