Description:

Nice but wonky example of a position KH, imperforate Penny Red Star.This particular version has two great margins (top and bottom); a decent margin to the right (although it does thin to obscurity towards the bottom); and a poor margin to the left. On the latter, the cut encroaches into the design face.

The postcard consists of a sideways orientated oval barred numeral cancel. The shape informs us that it originates in England and Wales, although the number itself cannot be discerned. With the final digit being a 0 and the bars appearing fairly elongated to fit three digits, it could have come from considerable number of possible Post Offices.

The gum is decent, although it is clearly off paper as some remains. The watermark is scarcely visible to the naked eye, but appears at the bottom edge. It has not been hinged, although minor creasing detracts equally as much as if it were. Overall a reasonably clean example, with a relatively unblemished face given it’s advancing age.
