Description:

Fair condition plate 106, position DG, Penny Red with slight offset but decent margins and complete design. Corner letters and plate numbers are in good condition. Some perforation faults exist. Gum is blackened but acceptable, and the watermark is faint but just noticeable. The plate number has been written on the reverse.

The postmark is a well printed, three bar, highly circular but oval barred numeral cancel. The shape indicates an England and Wales office, whilst the number itself - 723 - refers to the office in Southampton, Hampshire - according to G. Brumell. John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree, noting the office used this up unto 1964 (book via GBPS).
