Description:

Interesting example of a plate 110, position QE, Penny Red. The gum is clean and a previous owner has written the plate number as “110?”. From my inspetcion I would make out the unclear plate number(s) as “100”, but given the middle “0” is offset I’m inclined to think it is a mirage. Thus I will defer to another's analysis and return to confirm with reference copies in hand.± Beyond this the stamp is in decent condition with good perforations, good centring and a otherwise clean face. The watermark is obvious and there are not clear and obvious faults on either side.± The postmark is faint but clear. It may be part of a duplex, but the obvious flattened, horizontal barred numeral cancel is of England and Wales (per the shape). The office number 385 corresponds, according to G. Brumell, to Shooters Hill, Kent, in the lists of 1887. John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree and note that it fell out of use at it’s first location in Hedon, Yorkshire, in 1857. Thus, this stamp having been printed after this must have been used by the Shooters Hill office between 1875 and 1895, when it again stopped being used (book via GBPS).
