Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
Poor example of a Penny Red from plate 72, position II. Some easterly offset exists which removes a small part of the design, which is itself somewhat faded. The plate numbers arn’t the clearest, but can be made out. Perforations has significant faults including breakage and discolouration. The gum is clean with a great example of a Large Crown watermark. The plate number has been written at the bottom. The postmark is a semi-well printed four bar vertical oval numeral cancel. The shape indicates and England and Wales office. The final digit of the office number is missing, but a small part of it - a diagonally line - would suggest it would have been a 4. The full office number, 134, would thus be of Bristol, according to G. Brumell.
Oval barred numeral cancel: 134
Large Crown (Standard)
