Description:

Decent example of a plate 96, position SH, Penny Red with good centring, two thin margins (top and bottom) and borderline margins on the left and right. A few perforation faults are present, but it doesn’t particularly ruin the aesthetics. The watermark is easy to see, and the gum itself is clean and has been annotated by a previous owner. The plate number is clear and the letters vibrant.

The postmark is of the older type oval barred numeral cancel which indicates that it was used within england and wales. The postmark itself is heavy, but clear. The office number is incomplete, having only the first two digits: “40-“, which would narrow it down to one of ten offices. Good reference if hand in hand with a simular postmark.
