Description:

Aged copy of a plate 93, position OL Penny Red with significant offset at the detriment of detail. The plate number is easily readable, and the detail otherwise clean and clear. There is some discolouration to both the face and gum, and major perforation faults are present. The watermark is clear and semi-central, whilst the plate number has also been penciled in on the back.

The postmark is a semi-translucent but extremely well printed four bar oval barred numeral cancel, as used in England and Wales. Whilst the office number is incomplete - the last digit being obscured - I’m inclined to suggest that it is 588 from what I can make out. This would, according to G. Brumell, imply it was stamped in the office at Okehampton, Devon (Oakhampton prior to 1874). John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree, noting it was used there up until 1961 (book via GBPS).
