Description:

Decent copy of a plate 86, position DL, Penny Red with deep colour and excellent detail. Whilst offset only a small amount of the righthand design has been removed, and the plate number (on both sides) is extremely clear. The perforations are good, and the gum is clean. Unfortunately the watermark is faint and hard to see. A past owner has added the plate number to the back.

The postmark is a very clean and well stamped example of a horizontal oval barred numeral cancel, as used in England and Wales. The office number, 132, is that of Brighton, Sussex - as written down by G. Brumell.
