Description:

Lovely example of a late Victoria, jubilee issue 2½d stamp with circle bar numeral cancel with the numeral 152. The shape informs us that it is an England and Wales Post Office, and G. Brumell places the Burton on Trent P.O. in Staffordshire, whilst John Parmenter and Ken Smith informs us that this P.O. was in operation from 1844 to 1962, with the “152” cancellation mark being used from 1844 to 1905 (found via the GBPS).

The stamp itself is in fair condition since the upper right corner has some slight damage. The face itself is decent, with the postmark relatively complete. A second different postmark lies to the left and takes on a different form.
