Description:

Penny Red from plate 78, position DE, with a slight offset towards the lower left, but three okay margins. The detail, including the plate number, is clear, and the colour pale but decent. The gum is clean with a complete, semi-centred watermark and the plate number pencilled in. Perforations are overall quite good but there is a major fault in the bottom right consisting of a broken corner.

The postmark is faint and partial. It appears to be an elongated barred numeral cancel and the curved top edge implies that it is of an oval shape, rather then a retcangle. The former was used by offices within England and Wales. The office number begins with “43” but unfortunately the final digit is missing. Precise location of use is thus it remains unknown to time.
