Description:

My best judgement (any my brightest light) would likely suggest that this is a Large Crown watermarked Penny Red star. Only a few issues of such were printed before the postmarked date of November 19th, 1855. These are SG 26 through to SG 33. The 14x14 perforation further narrows it down to being between SG 29 and 33. The colour appears to be a standard red-brown whilst thus indicates SG 29.

Overall the piece is in good to fine condition, having been at some point cut off cover fairly well. The stamp has three good margins, great colour and detail, and is well presented with the clean and clear postmark. Previous owners have made a few helpful notations.
