Description:

Heavily offset plate 158, position HB, Penny Red. Two large margins to the top and right at the expense of cutting off the left side of the stamp. Not in the best of shape with significant signs of ageing - including discolouration and poor texture.

The postmark consists of a oval barred numeral cancel with the number 447 contained therein. The shape indicates it being used in England and Wales, and G. Brumell places the Louth, Lincolnshire, Post Office as using this number. John Parmenter and Ken Smith further indicates that this type of postmark would have been used between 1844 and 1913 (book via GBPS).

Beyond this the gum shows discolouration, but the watermark is clear and easy to identify. The plate number has been written on the reverse at some point.
