Description:

Okay example of a plate 90, position GG, Penny Red. Whilst offset southwards, the entire design is present and in good condition. The plate number is clear, the perforations are decent with few faults and the colour is great. The gum has a few insignificant blemished, with the watermark obvious but highly offset. An ex-owner has pencilled in the plate number also.

The postmark appears to be a two-part oval barred numeral cancel, which would have been used in London. Unfortunately I can make out neither the district (top letter) nor the complete office number (which appears to start with a 3).
