Description:

Position BC rosy mauve two-and-halfpence stamp from 1876. Just three margins and decent centring. All detail intact. Some discolouration around the postmark. Excellent perforations and nice clean gum. Watermark very faint but just about visible.

The postmark appears to be a duplex. The circular date stamp (CDS) is almost entirely missing, but the oval barred numeral cancel is readable. The shape indicates an England and Wales office, whilst the office number itself - which appears to just be “10” - would indicate use in Alresford, Hampshire (per G. Brumell). John Parmenter and Ken Smith agree, noting it was used between 1844 and 1903 (book via GBPS).
