Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Decent example of a well centred plate 79, position RL, Penny Red. Good perforations and thin margins. Good colour and detailed lettering and plate numbers. Gum is good for its age and shows a well centred watermark; the plate number has been written south of this by a previous owner. The postmark is patchy but consumes the face. It is a four bar vertical oval barred numeral cancel, as used in England and Wales. The office number, 675, corresponds to St. Albens in Hertfordshire (according to G. Brumell). John Parmenter and Ken Smith also state this, and note that it was remarkably used from 1844 all the way up to 1961 (book via GBPS).
Oval barred numeral cancel: 675
Large Crown (Standard)
