This cover carries a 1d. red tied by a “702” numeral handstamp of Sherborne and a double arc mark dated 29 September 1845. Presumably the letter attracted a double rate so a manuscript “1” was applied at Sherborne. The BATH double arc mark was applied dated 30 Sep. The cover then received a circular PAID mark in red on 1st October on arrival in Brighton.
