Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Good example of a Penny Red from plate 150, position AE. Four thin margins, good colour and well-preserved detail make this an excellent specimen. The plate number is easily readable and the perforations are good. The gum is aged but okay, whilst the watermark is visible but offset. It has been hinged in the past, and a previous owner has also pencilled in the plate number. The watermark is a partial four bar vertical oval barred numeral cancel. The shape indicates it was used within England and Wales. The office number is missing the first digit, but from what we can see I would say it was a nine. Thus the full office number would be “931” which according to G. Brumell corresponds to the office in Easingwold, Yorkshire. John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree and note it was used up unto 1907 (book via GBPS).
Oval barred numeral cancel: 931
Large Crown (Standard)
ID#: 2109 (Used)
