Description:

Offset plate 149, position GI Penny Red. Two large margins as the detriment of the others, with the righthand corner letters cut short. Otherwise a nice example with good colour and detail. A few perforation faults exist, but nothing major. The gum is clean and the watermark is itself heavily offset, but at least very clear. Plate numbers just readable. The plate number has been pencilled in on the back.

The postmark is very cleanly printed partial vertical duplex. The top half shows the bottom half of a three bar numeral cancel of the square variety - which along would indicate a Scottish office. The first two digits could be made out to be 13, and the last digit by inference is a 1. This is because “131” is the number used by the Edinburgh office according to G. Brumell. The lower dotted circle also confirms the office location.
