Description:

Decent condition two-and-halfpenny stamp from 1880. Good colour and mostly decent perforations, although there is clear faults in places. From plate 23. Gum is clean with only minor markings and a pencil written catagorization number. The perfin is missing pins, and is inverted.LA

The postmark appears to be a duplex, with the circular date stamp on the left almost completly missing. The numeral cancel is contained within a square, with two bars above and below the office number. This was therefore used in Scotland, and the office number - 114 - thus corrosponds to Dundee in what was then Forfarshire. This is according the G. Brumell.
