Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Nice example of a plate 72, position HD, Penny Red with good centring and excellent perforations. The face is clean and vibrant, whilst the plate numer is easy to read. The gum look dirty and unfortunately the watermark is hard to see. The plate number has been written on the back. Otherwise a fine example. The postmark is a small format oval barred numeral duplex. The shape indicates an England and Wales office, whilst the number - 800 - would imply, according to G. Brumell, that it has come from Tiverton in Devon. John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree and suggest it was used up unto 1897 (book via GBPS). Little can be known from the partial circular date stamp (CDS) to the left.
Oval barred numeral duplex: 800
Large Crown (Standard)
