Thinned example of a plate 89, position SB, Penny Red with significant downward shift which obliterates the lower edge of the design. A poor example, the watermark is barely visible and light shines through! The postmark is a faint barred numeral cancel - thus of England and Wales - with the number office number 502 just legible.

Oval Barred Numeral Cancel: 502
