Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Good example of a Penny Red from plate 132, position NI. This copy has good thin margins and good centring. There are a few perforations faults, but nothing major. The detail is good, the plate numbers easy to see, and the watermark obvious and just south of centre. The plate number has been inscribed on the back by a previous owner. The postmark is patchy and semi-incomplete. Its an oval barred numeral cancel with the number 860 or 880, although I’m inclined to lean towards the former. The shape (oval) indicates an England and Wales office, with G. Brumell indicating that the number 860 would have been used by the Wellington, Somerset, office. John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree with this and suggest it was used all the way up to 1924 (book via GBPS).
Oval barred numeral cancel: 860
