Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Well centred, deeply coloured Penny Red from plate 179, position DC. With two good margins to the top and bottom, and nearly two margins on either side, this is a great example with clean detail and vibrancy. There are a few perforation faults, and the gum is clean with a clear watermark. The plate number is hard to make out, but present. The postmark is a very well stamped South East (S.E) London district postmark from office number 5. It would have been part of a duplex, as indicated but the partial circle to the left.
Two-part oval barred numeral duplex: S.E / 5; Circular date stamp (CDS): unknown
Large Crown (Standard)
