Description:

Penny Red from plate 97, position QC, with significant faults. These includes fading, some offset, a difficult to read plate number, a major blemish to the face and also some discolouration. Otherwise, the the perforations are fine and the watermark clear. The reverse itself has only mild faults, and the plate number has been written on the back.

The postmark is a faint barred numeral cancel; the oval shape indicates an England and Wales office. The number is faint but otherwise perfetcly legible, and reads “188”, which would - according to G. Brumell - correspond to Chester-le-Street office in Durham. According to John Parmenter and Ken Smith it changed forms a few times during this postmark’s use between 1844 and 1905, but it would always have corresponded to the office in this location (book via GBPS).
