Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Penny Red from plate 186, position LJ. I’m reluctant to call this a spacefiller given it’s clean and clear postmark which may be of some use. However, this very mark completely observes the face. Otherwise the stamp is well centered with good margins, a clear plate number and generally good colour. The gum is clean, with a clear watermark, and has the plate number written on. The postmark is a barred numeral cancel with office number 616. The shape - oval - indicates a office from within England and Wales, whilst the number itself is ascribed to Pulborough, Sussex, according to G. Brumell. John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree, and state that it was used from 1844 all the way up to 1965 (book via GBPS)
Oval barred numeral cancel: 616
Large Crown (Standard)
