Description:

Interesting Penny Red from plate 116, position GL. Whilst well centered it suffers from significant faults, including perforation damage and marginal creasing. The plate number is hard to see; the lettering is clean and the colour good. The gum is clear with a obvious watermark and the plate number written on.

The postmark appears to have been stamped twice in the same position. We can see an oval barred numeral cancel of England and Wales plus a circular date stamp with the text BRADFORD and the date of use being September, 15th, 1870. The numeral within the bars, 107, also corresponds to Bradford (in Yorkshire) according to G. Brumell. John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree, mentioning that it was used until 1890 (book via GBPS). Why it was stamped in this fashion we may never know.
