Description:

Not the greatest example of a plate 102, position QE, Penny Red. Colour and face have superficial damage and the is significant perforation faults. The print is mostly centre but there is a little offsetting. Texture isn’t great and the stamp doesn’t lay flat. The gum is clean with a slightly offset but clear watermark. The plate number is easy to read. A previous owner has written the plate number on the gum.± The postmark is a patchy example of four bar oval barred numeral cancel with the office number 344. The shape indicates an England and Wales office, whilst the number points us towards Havant in Hampshire, per G. Brumell. John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree and note it was used up until 1906 (book via GBPS)
