Great Britain - 1840 One-Penny Black, By Plate No. continued...
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
1086 c ImageGREAT BRITAIN, 1840, 1p Black (1; SG 2; SG Specialised AS56yb). Plate 9, lettered H-J, large margins to just barely touching at bottom, tied by black "Poulton Penny Post" two-line handstamp without Maltese Cross on folded letter to Kendal, Preston Jun. 28, 1841 despatch and Kendal Jun. 29, 1841 arrival datestamps on flaps

FINE AND EXCEPTIONALLY RARE PENNY BLACK FROM PLATE 9 TIED BY THE POULTON PENNY POST CANCEL WITHOUT THE MALTESE CROSS.

While any Poulton Penny Post cancel on a Penny Black is rare, on or off cover, these typically are found used in combination with a Maltese Cross cancel. Those without the Maltese Cross cancel, such as the example offered here, are major rarities as highlighted by the difference in catalogue value listed in the SG Specialised. SG Specialised £28,000 (Image)
