Description:

Well centred Penny Red from plate 117, position SI. Good detail, colour and margins. Easy to read plate number and decent perforations with faults along the top edge. Very clean gum although the watermark is highly offset and cut off. The plate number is written within the lower quarter.

The postmark is a very clear and well stamped four bar, oval barred numeral cancel. The shape suggests England and Wales, whilst the office number points us towards Hurstpierpoint, Sussex (per G. Brumell, although he notes there is some oddities with this official history of this stamp). John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree and state it would have been used between 1847 and 1917, although the office itself changed forms multiple times between then (book via GBPS).
