Description:

Very poor condition plate 95, position IB, Penny Red with two large margins. The design is extremely off centre, with the left-most edge deeply cut by the perforations. On such a note, multiple perforations are irreparably damaged, with the lower left corner also severely foxed.

A postmark exists but cannot be easily discerned as anything notable. The bulk of the design is clean and detailed, and the gum has some convincing evidence of being hinged or have coming off paper. A previous owner has written the plate number, “95” on the back. The Large Crown watermark is clearly visible to the eye and appears to be offset the the right (viewing from the reverse). However, this is actually reasonably central to the design compared to the faces own offset position.

Overall a regrettably damaged specimen, but perhaps useful as reference in some regards.
