Okay example from a postmark perspetcive, this Penny Red from plate 74, position PK, is extremely offset - to the point that not only is the righthand side of the design cut off, the same side of the stamp to the left is included.. Otherwise the face is fairly clean and the plate number visible between the postmark. The perforations have faults, but nothing major. The gum in clean, with a previous owners annotation plus a very obvious, well placed watermark. The postmark is a two-part oval barred cancellation which would have originated from a London District. The “W.C” stands for the West Central district, with the office number being “29”. PhilatelicWeb would suggest that this number is from Charing Cross in Middlesex (PhilatelicWeb Database, reference 7806).
