Description:

Acceptable copy of a plate 114, position EI, Penny Red. Some wear on face, but despite a large upper margin the design is intact. The plate number is readable, and the corner letters decent. There are some perforation faults, and discolouration can be see after looking at the gum. The watermark has significant offset and is faintly visible. A previous owner has written the plate number on the lower half of the gum.

The postmark is patchy and incomplete. It can be seen to be a oval barred numeral cancel with two parts. The top part is missing the first letter, but the second - a “C” - indicates it was used within a Centre district in London (i.e. West Centre, East Centre, etc). The office number reads 17.
