Description:

Plate 72, position BL, Penny Red in good physical condition. The primary drawback is the high degree of rightwards offset which cuts off the right edge of the stamp, including the corner letters almost completely. Whilst the stamp is fairly clean, unfaded and lacking significant damage, because of the above the main draw to this stamp is the excellent postmark. Besides this, the perforations are in fine condition, and the gum is clean with an easily visible watermark - itself very off centre.

The postmark is an oval numeral cancel with four bars. The shape indicates that it originated from an England and Wales office, and G. Brumell informs us that it would have come from Devonport, Devon. John Parmenter and Ken Smith confirm this, and suggest it was used from 1844 to 1896 (book via GBPS).
