Description:

Nice copy of a plate 82, position AH, Penny Red. This specimen has good centring, vibrant colour, good detail and clear plate numbers. The perforations are great, the gum is clean, and the watermark is easily recognisable. The only fault is that the upper left corner is foxed, but not to a significantly damaging degree. The plate number has helpfully been written on the back.± The postmark is poorly stamped and is thus patchy and difficult to analyse. It is clearly a three bar oval barred numeral cancel, as used in England and Wales. However the specific office is hard to ascertain given that the numbers are poorly printed. I can perhaps just make out the first two as “43”, but I struggle to make out the final digit. It is perhaps an 8 - which would indicate it was used in Sedbergh, Yorkshire - but I couldn’t be confident about it, and the stamp of that number itself has a curious and difficult history.
