Description:

Excellent example of a mostly well centred Penny Red from plate 84, position QD. The perforations are excellent and the condition of both the face and gum is superb. The plate number and the watermark are both clear. A previous owner has annotated the plate number on the gum. In general just an excellent copy.

The main draw is obvious ly the very clean and very clear postmark. Its a small format oval barred numeral cancellation from England and Wales (as suggested by the shape). The office number - 134 - is that of Bristol, as per G. Brumell’s work. John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree, but suggest it could have been used in multiple different areas. That is, Clifton, North Street or Redcliffe (book via GBPS). Unfortunately without an adjoining circular date stamp (CDS) it is hard to narrow down further.
