Description:

Significantly offset (towards the left) Penny Red from plagte 140, position ED. Huge margin to the right ultimately means the left border, and corner letters, are bisetced. Otherwise a clean example with good detail and colour, okay perforations (ignoring very minor corner foxing) and a very clean gum. The watermark is easy to see and well detailed. The plate number has been written on the bottom by a previous owner.

The postmark is patchy but clear, and it takes the form of a large format oval barred numeral cancel. The shape indicated an England and Wales office. The number is cut off, but the last digit appears to be a “6”, making the full office number “466”. Thus G. Brumell place this as having been used in Liverpool, Lancashire. Comparing to John Parmenter and Ken Smith’s work, I would be inclined to specifically identify it as a postmark of type VOSA (One serif on four) which would have been used from 23rd of October, 1866, to the 8th of August, 1882 (book via GBPS).
