Appears to be Scott 29 (or SG 45 if you prefer Stanley Gibbons). 1858 -1870.

The 159 postmark indicates Chard post office (Somerset, 1844-1962) I believe.

The postmark is from Glasgow.

nigel, I stand corrected, and I see the 159 listed for Glascow. What confuses me is that 159 shows up for Chard in Somerset as well -- in the listings at the following web site. Am I missing something?

http://www.gbps.org.uk/information/po-numbers/england-bycounty.php

Edit: Never mind, I see now that the style of the postmark indicates the area (in this case Scotland). I will start at the beginning next time. Glascow it is.
