(Mac OS Big Sur) HP Deskjet 2654 (1200 DPI, 24-bit Colour) through VueScan 9; Edited with GIMP; Lossless compression with ImageOptim; converted with Pixallon (NCH Software) to 350 DPI with 50% Lossy JPEG Compression

Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Poor example of a plate 93, position RA, Penny Red with significant faults. This includes a severe bottom left offset, trimmed and broken perforations, and blackened gum. The watermark is clear, unlike the plate number which is slightly difficult to make out. The postmark is semi-legible, but it’s clear it is of the square barred variety which indicates its use within Scotland. The office number, however, is likely incomplete. However, if it is a single 8 then G. Brumell would suggest it has come from Aberlour, Banffshire.
Square barred numeral cancel: 8?
