Description:

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).
