Description:

Highly offset Penny Red from plate 137, position IK. Large margins to the top and right at the detriment of others. Otherwise clean with clear plate numbers and good detail. Some perforation faults. Gum is dirtied and the watermark visible of very off-centre. Previous owner has annotated the plate number at the bottom.

The post mark is an incomplete oval barred numeral cancel. The shape indicates an England and Wales office. It may be that the first digit of the office number is missing, but the size and shape could suggest that the office number is simply “23”, which would have been used - according to G. Brumell - at Whitchurch in Hampshire (prior to 1858) or Senny Bridge in Brecknockshire (after 1874). John Parmenter and Ken Smith would agree, and further suggest that the number was not used between 1858 and 1874 (book via GBPS). Given this stamp came into being after 1864, it would therefore be from Senny Bridge.
