Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Okay example of a palte 92, position MD, Penny Red with slight offset. The face is fairly clean with minimal faults, clear plate numbering and lettering, and good colour. The gum is discoloured with some paper remnants, and the watermark is easily visible but shifting rightwards. The plate number has been written on by a previous owner. The postmark is for the most part clear, and is of the oval barred numeral type. The shape indicates an England and Wales office, and the number “285” - of which the last digit is less well impressed then the others - would imply that it was used around Exeter, Devon (according to G. Brumell). John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree, suggesting it was used up until 1956 (book via GBPS).
Oval barred numeral duplex: 285
Large Crown (Standard)
