Description:

Plate 96, position KA, Penny Red with serious faults. Major offset to the bottom left which cuts of part of three corner letters. There is significant perforation damage, a marked and superficially damaged face, highly discoloured gum, a borderline invisible watermark, and just generally thin paper. The plate number is written on the reverse.

Perhaps the only upside of this stamp is it shows a decent example of a flattened “horizontal” oval barred numeral cancel. The shape corresponds to the offices within England and Wales, whilst the office number itself - 831 - is attributed to Wakefield in Yorkshire (as per G. Brumell). John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree and note it was used up until 1906 (book via GBPS).
