Description:

Decent example of a plate 73, position KD, Penny Red with one to two sufficient margins. Regrettably off centre, the top perforations eat into the design. On such a note, the perforations are generally good with minor faults, and the face is generally clean. The postmark shows a retcangular barred numeral cancel with the number 158 (only the central edge of the 8 shows). The adjacent circle implies it is part of an aptly named circle duplex, and the retcangular shape suggests to us a Scottish Post Office. G. Brumell credibly informs us that such a number was used in the Girvan, Ayrshire, office. The plate number and Large Crown watermark is clear, with the latter being partially offset itself. Previous owners have penciled the plate number, “73”, on the gum which has itself been hinged in the past. There is, moreover, a slight blemish to the gum. In general, however, an okay specimen which doesn’t quite exhibit anything completely.
