Description:

Ignoring the cancellation, this plate 96, position GG, Penny Red is a fine specimen. it has four margins, excellent perforations, good colour and detail - including a readable plate number - clear gum with a decent watermark and minimal superficial damage. However the postmark reduces its attractiveness by a large margin. The plate number has been written on the back by a helpful previous owner.± Moving onto the watermark, it is a very heavy but patchy vertical oval barred numeral cancel with the number “73” enclosed within a circle. These were typically used by the London Branch (Suburban) services, but exact identification is laborious due to their mixed use (although it is something I will strive to do in the future).
