Description:

Okay example of a Penny Red. Giving the huge rightwards offset there is only one plate number available to see; that on the left. Unfortunately this is obscured by the heavy (but good) postmark. From what I can see I’m inclined to listen to what a previous owner has written on the back: that it has come from plate 94 (and position JK). Besides this the perforations are good, albeit in the wrong place. The gum is okay, if aged; and the watermark is clear.

Most of the face is obscured by the extremely well printed postmark. This consists of a barred numeral cancel. The shape - a squashed oval - indicate an England and Wales office, whilst the number itself informs us that it has come from Sevenoaks in Kent (Per G. Brumell). John Parmenter and Ken Smith confirm this, suggesting it was used from 1844 to 1921 (book via GBPS). Either way the postmark is what makes this stamp special.
