Description:

Penny Red from plate 114, position JI. Whilst fine in regards to detail, margins and perforations, the colour appears either pale or worn, or both. The plate number and lettering is clear, and the watermark on the clean gum obvious. One minor crease is apparent looking at it from the reverse. A previous owner has written the plate number on the back helpfully.

The watermark is an wonky and faint four bar vertical barred numeral cancel. Whilst the office where it was used can be known by its oval shape to have been in England and Wales, the exact office is less so. I’m inclined to read the office number as “883”, which would be that in Wincanton, Somerset, but it could also be read as 683, which would be that in Salisbury, Wiltshire - both according to G. Brumell. Computer aid may assist.
