Description:

Okay copy of a plate 132, position SG, Penny Red with a slight northwestern offset. It appears to have been printed on modestly thick paper. The detail is slightly worn with the plate number somewhat difficult to read. The perforations are decent although some are shorter then would be liked. The gum is aged with an extremely dark watermark. The plate number has also been written on the back.

The postmark is a clear, well stamped oval barred numeral cancel. The shape indicates an England and Wales office, whilst the number 132 indicates use at the Brighton, Sussex, Post Office - according to G. Brumell. John Parmenter and Ken Smith confirms this, but appears to note that it could have been one of nearly a dozen different offices in the area - depending on the date (book via GBPS). Without addition material it would be difficult to narrow it down at the moment.
