Description:

Okay example of a deeply coloured Penny Red from plate 124, position FB. It has two good margins, plus two marginal ones, which thankfully means that the design is fully visible and the corner letters in great shape. The plate number is clear, and the detail on the design is good. The perforations are mostly faultless. The gum is clean with an obvious watermark; plus the plate number has been written on by a previous owner.

The postmark is fairly faint, but itd a four bar, barred numeral cancel of an oval shape - which thus suggest an England and Wales office. The number given, 258, is of Dover in Kent, according to G. Brumell. John Parmenter and Ken Smith further elaborate that this numeral was only used by this office up to 1886, when it started to be used by the Dover Station Office until 1903 (book via GBPS).
