Description:

Plate 72, position HB, Penny Red with faults. Small margins lead some detail missing. The face appears worn and aged, whilst the perforations are clearly damaged in locations. The plate number is difficult to read. The gum is mostly clean with a off-centre watermark that is otherwise easily visible. An ex-owner has written the plate number on the back.± The postmark appears to have been applied twice, but neither has made a good impression. It can be seen to be an oval barred numeral cancel which would indicate that it was used within England and Wales. Unfortunately the exact office number cannot be determined.
