Description:

Penny Red from plate 281, position TC, with three margins and clean and clear detailing and lettering. The colour is slightly paler then standard, but not particularly unusual. ± The postmark is a oval barred numeral cancel which places it as being used in England and Wales. I’m inclined to think that there is a missing third digit; but the vertical line (relatively) that appears on the upper perforations next to the “4”, plus the lack of any other evidence, could mean that it is simply from office 54. If this is the case it would, according to G. Brumell, indicate it having been used in Battle, Sussex. John Parmenter and Ken Smith would further add that it would have been used between 1844 and 1909. The partial circle to the left also indicates that it was part of a duplex. Either way its a well stamped specimen.± The reverse is fairly clean, with the watermark being heavily offset northwards - but still easy to see by eye. The plate number has been written on the back. Lastly the perforations are mostly fine although there are some noticeable faults.
