Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Penny Red from plate 80, position, NJ. Whilst it has two large margins, the design is otherwise complete with minmal damage to the corner letters on the opposite sides. The colour is a deep red with clear plate numbers and detail. The perforations are generally fine with a few minor faults. The gum is slightly discoloured and a faint watermark. The plate number, 80, has been written on the back. The postmark is heavy but partial. It shows a oval barred numeral cancel with the Office number “C9”. The oval shape implies an England and Wales office. According to G. Brumell, John Parmenter and Ken Smith this number was allocated to Commins Coch in Wales but it never know to have been used there. The only place it is known to have been used was Cemmaes, Wales, (office number C6) between the years of 1864 and 1894 (Parmenter and Smith’s book via GBPS).
