Description:

Penny Red from plate 106, position PG, with two margins at the detriment of others. Faded colour and generally good but worn perforations reduce the attractiveness of this specimen. The gum is discoloured and has paper remnants, but the watermark is clear with the plate number also written on. A fair example.± The well-stamped but patchy postmark is a partial duplex, with the lefthand circular date stamp (CDS) mostly missing. The oval shape of the barred numeral cancel indicates an England and Wales office, whilst I’m inclined to think that the office number is “888” judging by what we can see of the final digit. G. Brumell would thus suggest it would have been used in Winchester, Hampshire. John Parmenter and Ken Smith would agree, stating it would have been used up to 1909 (book via GBPS).
