Description:

generally good example of a plate 194, position IH, Penny Red with slight rightwards offset. Decent condition, although a bit pale, with clear margins, easy-to-read plate numbers and good perforations. The gum is clean with the watermark obvious. A previous owner has annotated the gum with the plate numer.

The postmark is partial, but very clean. It is a oval barred numeral cancel with the number 38 contained within a circle. This would suggest that it is from a London Suburban office, and G. Brumell would tell us that it is specifically the Kensington office. This is corroborated by John Parmenter and Ken Smith who add it was used up unto 1962 (book via GBPS).
