Description:

Good example of a plate 81, position OC, Penny Red with four modest margins. It has a clean face, good detail and mostly decent perforations. The gum is clean with a historic hinge, and the Large Crown watermark is thankfully easily visible under light.

The face has a diamond barred numeral cancel with the number 186. This shape diretcs us towards it being stamped in Ireland, and G. Brumell places it as having come from Dublin.

All things considered this specimen is a postmark example with an attractive and well-centred stamp.
