Description:

Decent plate 89, position SA, Penny Red. Three good margins with only a minor offset means all the detail is in view. The plate number is clear and easily readable, whilst the colour and detail is generally fine. There are some perforation faults. The gum is clean with a clear and only slightly offset watermark. A previous owner has written the plate number on the back.

The postmark is incomplete and patchy. We note that it appears to be an oval barred numeral cancel; the shape indicating an England and Wales office. Since we only seem to have the last two digits of the office number, “34”, it is hard at current to narrow down the location to say exactly where it was used.
