Poor to Fair
Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Plate 97, position QD, Penny Red with superficial damage to the face in the form of bluish marks (appears to be a remnant of paper). Otherwise it has two decent margins and clear corner letters. Perforations are fine and the watermark central and easily visible.± The draw to this stamp, and it’s real value, lies in the extremely clear postmark. It is a two part barred numeral cancel that would have been used in the London Districts - specifically the South Western (S.W). The office number, “32”, indicates it having come from Putney - according to John Parmenter and Ken Smith (Book via GBPS).
