Description:

Upwardly offset Penny Red from plate 96, position BA. Good detail and colour and good perforations. The plate number is slightly hard to see. The gum is blackened but the watermark is still obvious. A previous owner has written on the plate number. Whilst off-centre by quite some margin, it nonetheless has a fairly complete and unblemished face.

The postmark is a sideways, flattened oval barred numeral cancel. The shape indicates an England and Wales office, whilst the numeral - 634 - points us towards it having been used in Ramsgate, Kent (according to G. Brumell). John Parmenter and Ken Smith further indicate that this number was used by this office up unto 1904 (book via GBPS).
