Description:

Good example of a Penny Red from plate 85, position CK. The face has good colour and detail, and the corner letters are in great condition, surrounded by three thin magins and one borderline on the right. The plate number is easily seen by eye, without magnification, whilst the watermark is similarly visible. The plate number is also written at the bottom of the reverse side. The only major fault is that the entire stamp is on the thin side.

The fairly faint postmark consists of a barred numeral cancel. The oval shape indicates that it was used within England and Wales, and the office number - a large format 84 - places it as coming from Canterbury, Kent. John Parmenter and Ken Smith further confirm this, and add that it was used from 1844 all the way up to 1949 (book via GBPS).
