Description:

Plate 91, position NF, Penny Red with very clear plate numbers and excellent quality corner letters. The face is generally clean with good details, but there is a slight southwesterly offset which gives two large margins to the right and top. The perforations are physically decent although there are faults, including discolouration. The gum is ugly, but the watermark clear and central. A previous owner has written the plate number on the reverse.

The postmark is a decent quality horizontal three bar oval barred numeral cancel. The shape indicates an England and Wales office, and cross-referencing with G. Brumell we can see that the office number, 949, refers to the Castle Cary, Somerset, office. John Parmenter and Ken Smith would agree, noting the stamp was used until 1906 (book via GBPS).
