Description:

Fair example of a plate 108, position SC, Penny Red with good margins, centring and detail. The colour is a deep red hue, and the lettering - plus plate number - is clearly visible. The perforations have some fault, with some being broken. The gum is aged but otherwise clean, with the watermark offset to the right slightly. a previous owner has written on the plate number.

The postmark is patchy and incomplete. Its clearly a barred cancel, and if I had to guess I’d say it appears to be an oval type as used in England and Wales. Beyond that not much can be ascertained.
