Description:

Good example of a plate 127, position IB, Penny Red with two good margins. Minimal faults on the clean face besides a slightly squashed upper left corner. Perforations are 90% good and the watermark is clearly visible to the eye. A previous owner has helpfully written the plate number on the back.

The postmark is semi-complete and well stamped. It shows a two-part barred numeral cancel which implies that it came from a London District office. Specifically, the W.C tells us it was from the West Centre District. However the numeral, 30, doesn’t point to any office in that area. Indeed, according to John Parmenter and Ken Smith, the London District-type postmark with office number 30 can only point to Carshalton in the Southern (S) district, or Lee in the South Eastern (SE) district (Via GBPS). I’ve thus flagged this for further investigation,
