Description:

Crispy example of a Penny Red from plate 150, position ED. The texture of this stamp is strange and think unusually thick, crisp and dry. It has previously been hinged and a trace amount of the original gum remains. From this side the watermark is invisible to the eye unless held up to the light. Many of the perforations are browned and short.

The face itself appears paler then would be expetced, and there are two large margins as a result of a heavy offset. The latter fact obscures the detail, including corner letters, on the left hand side. Beyond this the face shows good detail under magnification, and the plate number is extremely clear.

The postmark is a small format circular date stamp from the 2nd of January 1877. Its lightly printed but in generally good condition; perhaps a decent reference example.
