Cat. Value (Adjusted Cat. value adjusted for condition:
A heavily postmarked Victorian Jubilee Issue 2½d. Stamped with the oval bars of England and Wales, with a 763 numeral cancel which G. Brumell places as coming from the Swansea office in what was then the county of Glamorgan (abolished by Act in 1972). John Parmenter and Ken Smith informs us that this particular Post Office was in operation from 1844 to 1962, whilst the barred numeral cancel was used from 1844 to 1907 before being replaced (text https://www.gbps.org.uk/information/po-numbers/downloads-numbers.php). The stamp is in fair to good condition with minimal faults, although the postmark could be considered ugly. The gum is clean and shows no evidence of hinging. The watermark is poorly visible, but can the seen digitally or under light.
Oval barred numeral cancel: 763
