Description:

Fairly poor condition plate 125, position EA, Penny Red with heavy timing and short perforations. While the face is clean and the plate number obvious, it is in a terrible state. The gum has been hinged, and the watermark is both easily visible and mostly centred.

The postmark appears to be an oval barred numeral cancel, with the Post Office number contained within its own circle. This would diretc us towards the London Suburban. Unfortunately, the exact figures are impossible to discern, but it appears to end in a 6, with the first digit conceivably being a letter (Possibly H?). Given the condition of this specimen, however, I’m not too keen to devote hours to its identification - at least for now!
