Description:

Plate 119, position BA, Penny Red with major perforation faults and thinned paper. Well centred with clear plate numbers, it nonetheless appears dirty and/or ugly. The gum is discoloured but has a clear and offset watermark. The plate number has been pencilled in by a previous owner.

The postmark can just be made out to be a duplex, with a partial circle to the left of the large, clear, and well printed four bar, barred numeral cancel. The shape indicates an office within England and Wales, whilst the office number, 449, is ascribed by G. Brumell to Leicester in Leicestershire. John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree and note that it had a long use from 1844 to 1955 (book via GBPS).
