Poor to Fair
Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Plate 102, position DL, Penny Red with deep colour and large easterly offset. The plate numer is clear, the letters detailed and the face mostly clean but with some superficial markings. There are a few perforation faults. The stamp feels as if it was printed on thick paper when holding, but in either case the gum is clear and the watermark obvious although uncentered. A previous owner has helpfully annotated the plate number on the gum. The postmark appears to be a barred numeral cancel that takes on a vaguely oval shape. This would indicate a England and Wales office. Unfortunately the postmark is incomplete and ugly, so little else can be known.
Oval barred numeral cancel: unknown
Large Crown (Standard)
