Description:

Poor Penny Red from plate 87, position RH. Significant northeastern offset leaves a large bottom margin. The perforations themselves are okay but do have some minor faults. The plate number is easily visible without magnification, and the face itself has good colour - although it is slightly pale. The gum has major blemishes but the watermark is visible with the aid of a light. ± The postmark is of the oval barred type, which indicates its use within a Post Office in England and Wales. The numeral contained therein is either 675 or 673, although I’m inclined to suggest the former more then the latter. 675 would refer to St. Albans in Hertfordshire, according to G. Brumell. John Parmenter and Ken Smith would agree, stating it was used from 1844 all the way up to 1961 (book via GBPS).
