Description:

Poor copy of a plate 137, position GF, Penny Red with significant faults. This includes damaged perforations, including a cut lower right corner. There are a few creases, the paper is rough and the detail faded - such that the plate number is difficult to see. The print is fairly offset but not overly damaging. The watermark is a lot lower then it should be, and is partially cut off, but is otherwise visible on the clean gum. The plate number has helpfully been written on the reverse by a previous owner.

The postmark is a a duplex. The circular date stamp (CDS) on the left is very partial and unrecognisable. The right hand oval barred numeral is from office number 50. The shape indicates an England and Wales office, and therefore the number refers to the office in Barnstaple in Devon, per G. Brumell's reference work. John Parmenter and Ken Smith confirm this, and indicate it was used until 1917 (book via GBPS).
