(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:
Penny Red from plate 94, position OL. Generally well centred but weathered copy. Decent, thin margins, and good detail and colour on the face. Perforations are good with minor faults. Watermark is highly offset toward the top, and thus cut off slightly. Gum is otherwise clean with the plate number written at the bottom. Paper feels thick. Plate number easily readable. The postmark is a faint duplex. The lefthand circular date stamp (CDS) is mostly missing, but the oval barred cancel on the right is almost complete. The shape indicate an England and Wales office, whilst the number 180 implies the office at Chester in Cheshire (per G. Brumell). John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree, stating it was use until 1908 (book via GBPS).
Oval barred numeral duplex: 180
Large Crown (Standard)
ID#: 2105 (Used)
