Description:

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).
