Description:

Penny Red from plate 79, position ED. Two large margins, but the opposite side isn’t excessively cut off and all four corner letters are visible. The plate number is obscured on both sides by the postmark, but it can just about be made out. Beyond this the perforations are in good shape, the gum is clean with a clear watermark, and the colour and detail is decent. A previous owner has annotated the reverse with the plate number.

The postmark is a oval barred numeral cancel with the office number 238. The shape indicates an England and Wales office, whilst the number would then point us towards the Post Office in Dawlish, Devon (according to G. Brumell). John Parmenter and Ken Smith further add that it would have been used between 1844 and 1903 (book via GBPS).
