Cat. Number If known, from:
(Mac OS Big Sur) HP Deskjet 2654 (1200 DPI, 24-bit Colour) through VueScan 9; Edited with GIMP; Lossless compression with ImageOptim; converted with Pixallon (NCH Software) to 350 DPI with 50% Lossy JPEG Compression

Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Deep shade Penny Red from plate 124, position BJ. Two good margins with minor faults on the others; all four corner letters in good condition. Some ageing and superficial damage to the face, plus the plate number is somewhat difficult to read. The reverse is blemished and discoloured. The watermark is clear and central, and the palte number has also been pencilled in. The postmark is a heavy two bar, square format numeral cancel. The shape alone would place it as being used in Scotland. The office number I would suggest is simply “1”, which would - according to G. Brumell - thus have been used within Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire.
Square barred numeral cancel: 1
Large Crown (Standard)
ID#: 2140 (Used)
