Description:

Decent example of a plate 99, position PI, Penny Red. Three thin margins with the last not encroaching on the design significantly. The face is well presented, with the corner letters in good condition. Perforations are okay with no major faults besides a foxed upper left corner. The gum is in fair condition with a highly offset but visible watermark. The plate number has been written along the lower edge.

The postmark is of the oval barred type, placing it as coming from an Office within England and Wales. G. Brumell states that the Post Office with number 878 was Wigan in Lancashire. John Parmenter and Ken Smith confirm this and state the mark was used between 1844 and 1905 (book via GBPS).
