Description:

Semi-centered Penny Red from plate 147, position MG. Decent perforations - minus a few faults - and an okay level of detail and colour. The plate number is somewhat hard to see. The gum is decent with an obvious watermark, plus the plate number helpfully pencilled in by a previous owner. A couple of margins but not at any great detriment of others.

The postmark is a clean and clear squashed oval barred numeral cancel with two parts. It likely originated from office number 8 from the South East London District.
