Description:

Deeply coloured plate 138, position LF, Penny Red with 2 decent margins and unfortunate trimming to the top edge. Otherwise in generally fair condition, especially as there is other perforation damage and an unattractive postmark. It has a clear and central Imperial Crown watermark and clearly discernible plate numbers.

The postmark is faint and very splotchy. It can be discerned as a oval barred numeral cancel of England and Wales. The number can scarcely be made out, but appears to be 843. If this is the case then G. Brumell places it as having been stamped in Wareham, Dorset. John Parmenter and Ken Smith (via the GBPS website) add that this stamp would have been used from the office founding in 1844 up unto 1905. The office itself continued to exist until 1962 (archive.org mirror of book setcion).
