Description:

An okay example of a plate 127, position RH, Penny Red with one good margin. The face is superficially damaged, and the edges are somewhat curled. The texture itself is poor, and the perforations okay but unattractive. The watermark is clear to the eye, but there appears to be minor thinning to the stamp. The plate number itself is hard to determine.

Overall the main attraction of this piece comes from the semi-complete barred numeral cancel. Consisting of four vertical rows which enclose the numerals “888”, the oval shape indicates that it has come from an office within England and Wales. The number is from the Post Office in Winchester, Hampshire - according to G. Brumell. John Parmenter and Ken Smith further note it was used from 1844 to 1909 (book via the GBPS).
