Description:

Nice copy of a plate 87, position MD, Penny Red with excellent colour and detail. Two large margins and a significant offset means some of the design is cut off, but the quality of the rest could be said to make up for what is missing. It also has excellent perforations, nice smooth texture, and the gum is clean with a clear and semi-central watermark. The plate number has been inscribed by a past owner.

The postmark is a clean and well stamped four bar horizontal barred numeral cancel. The shape indicates that it was used within England and Wales. The office number is incomplete with the first digit missing. I would suggest it is either, in its entirety, 132 or 432. The former would refer to the office at Brighton, Sussex, whilst the latter would suggest use at Rolvenden, Kent - both according to G. Brumell.
