Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Poor example of a plate 149, position OI, Penny Red. This specimen shows significant damage, including foxed and broken perforations, faded colour and superficial marks, highly offset print which obscures the righthand corner letters and the watermark is clear but uncentered. A previous owner has written the plate number on the reverse, although it is easy to see otherwise. The obscuring postmark is an oval barred numeral cancel which implies an England and Wales office, but it has been double stamped which obscures the office number. To the best of my knowledge it appears to end in “86”, but that does little to narrow it down - and the poor condition doesn’t encourage me to spend time on it just yet!
Oval Barred Numeral Cancel: ?86
Large Crown (Standard)
ID#: 2184 (Used)
