Description:

Excellent condition plate 102, position KA, Penny Red with two superb margins. Whilst slightly off-centre, with the left and lower perforations scraping the design, the vibrant colour and clear detail compensates for any potential loss.

The postmark shows a 6 bar retcangular barred numeral cancel with the number 27. The shape indicates Scotland, and G. Brumell would thus place it as having been stamped in Ayr Post Office, in Ayrshire. The lack of bars to the diretc left and right of the numeral would suggest it would have been part of a circle duplex. Thankfully the cancellation is in excellent condition and is superbly clear.

The gum has been hinged in the past, and is showing minor signs of ageing. A Large Crown watermark is clearly visible to the eye. A few perforations are broken or short; however, in general its a lovely bright specimen.
