Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Clean example of a Penny Red star. Whilst decent and cut off a cover, its cutting it quite close to the edge. Two large margins are present to the right and top, however this comes at the expense of the left side where the perforations have taken off corner pieces - i.e. the letter, so we no longer can tell its source. The postmark is fairly well stamped and it can easily be made out to have come from Carlisle, Wales, on the 23rd of November 1857. Its a smaller version of the earlier style large circular date stamps, but interesting nonetheless.
