Description:

Fair example of a plate 74, position GL, Penny Red with two good margins and minor offsetting. Paper is slightly thin and the gum is discoloured, but this otherwise makes the well centred watermark clearly visible. Perforations are good if we exclude those in the upper left corner. Lettering and plate number is clear.

The postmark is a light and patchy four bar oval barred numeral cancel. The shape indicates an office within England and Wales, whilst the numerals 123 points us towards Bridgwater in Somerset (per G. Brumell). John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree but not it was only used until 1883 (book via GBPS).
