Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Poor example of a plate 102, position BA, Penny Red. Whilst it has minor offset and all four corners are visible, this copy suffers from major perforation faults, discolouration, creasing and - of course - a very ugly, obscuring, postmark. Beyond this the gum is blackened and the watermark, whilst visible, is offset. The plate number has bene written on the back. The postmark is a very patchy and poorly stamped small-style horizontal oval barred numeral cancel. The shape indicates an England and Wales office, whilst the number itself appears to be 841. This would suggest, per G. Brumell, John Parmenter and Ken Smith, that it was stamped in Hednesford, Stafordshire. It would have been used between 1877 and 1906.
Oval barred numeral cancel: 841
Large Crown (Standard)
