Description:

Plate 76, position NA, Penny Red in poor condition. Ageing and fading to the face, with a generally ugly texture which doesn’t lay flat. Some perforation faults. Two large margins, but all four corner letters are visible. The plate number is easy to read and the watermark is obvious on an otherwise spotless gum. The plate number has also been written on the bottom by a previous owner.± The postmark can clearly be seen to be an oval barred numeral cancel, which would imply that it was used in England and Wales. The office number is hard to read, however I’m inclined to believe it reads 956 or 856. Further analysis with computer trickery may shine light on it.
