Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Lovely copy of a Penny Red from palte 79, position QI. This copy has excellent colour, good margins and fantastically preserved details. The plate number is clear, the watermark is obvious on the clean gum, and the perforations are excellent with only a few niggling faults. The plate number has also been written on the reverse by a previous owner. The postmark is a very fine example of a London duplex. Whilst the circular date stamp (CDS) on the left is incomplete, the righthand barred numeral cancel is and is very clear and well stamped with the number 82 contained within a circle. Further investigation in the future will reveal the exact source since the stamps used within London can at times be laborious to identify.
Oval barred numeral duplex: (82)
Large Crown (Standard)
