Description:

Extremely offset plate 95, position AA, Penny Red. Practically the entire lefthand side border - including the corner letters - are missing. Beyond this the face is clean with a clear plate number; the perforations are good but not without faults. The reverse is clean with an obvious watermark, and a previous owner has written on the plate number.

The postmark is a patchy but otherwise clear oval barred numeral cancel. The shape indicates an England and Wales office, whilst the number, 635, would indicate the Reading, Berkshire, office according to G. Brumell. John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree and state it was used up unto 1933 (book via GBPS).
