Description:

Nice example of a plate 96, position BE, Penny Red with good centring and three margins. The face is unblemished, and the perforations are intact. The reverse is clean and the watermark prominent. The plate number and corner letters are unblemished and, for the former, easily visible. Overall a nice example. ± The watermark can be easily made out to be oval barred numeral cancel which places it as having come from England and Wales. The numeral contained therein can just be made out to be “108”, which G. Brumell suggests was used by the Carnarvon, Caernarfonshire. in Wales. This town is now known as Caernarfon, and is now part of the county of Gwynedd. John Parmenter and Ken Smith corroborate this, and indicate that the postmark was used from 1844 to 1906 (book via GBPS).
