Description:

Very southernly offset Penny Red from position KA on plate 102. Large top margin at the detriment of the bottom edge. Generally good condition with no major faults. Decent perforations with a few faults; clear plate number and lettering; clean gum with dark watermark. The plate number has been helpfully written on the gum.

The postmark is heavy but patchy. It is a flattened oval barred numeral cancel with the office number 400. The shape indicates an England and Wales office which thus places it, according to G. Brumell, as having come from Ilfracombe in Devon. John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree, indicated it was used there up unto 1906 (book via GBPS).
