Lovely example of a Penny Red star with a sideways duplex. The stamp itself is clean and clear with great detail. It is perforated (14x14) but appears to have been cut from a sheet rather then broken. Thus whilst the perforations cut the design, the whole face is still visible owning to the very large - often complete - margins. The postmark is a very well stamped sideways duplex and has stood the test of time. Overall a nice example that has been cut from a cover carefully at some point.
