Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Pale example of Penny Red star from position UH. The stamp has three small margins and has been cut off paper. Perforations are decent with the only major faults appearing along the right and upper right corner. Colour and detail is okay, but could be better. The postmark is a sideways duplex consisting of the town-name and a single ring. This is a medium to small format and dates it evidently to May 5th, 1857. The numeral cancel is faint and poorly stamped, but it can still be made out to read 182.
Oval barred numeral cancel: 182; Circular date stamp (CDS): BRIGHTON / MY 5 1857 B4
