Description:

Highly offset Penny Red from plate 101, position IJ. Unfortunately the large top margin comes at the extreme detriment of the lower border which is cut off. Otherwise a decent example with a clear plate number, good colour and detail, fair perforations with a few faults, and a clean gum with clear watermark. The plate number has been written on the back in pencil.

The postmark is a faint sideways duplex, with an oval barred numeral cancel on the righthand side. The shape indicates an England and Wales office, and the numerals are just visible and appear to be “358”. G. Brumell attributes this number to Eardisley in Herifordshire in the earlier lists, or Radstock, Somerset, in the lists from 1887. John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree, but note that the number was used in Eardisley only up to 1846, and in Radstock from 1875 to 1906 (book via GBPS). Given the rough date of printing, this stamp should in theory have been sued in the latter town. The circular date stamp (CDS) to the right is incomplete.
