Archer Perforations and this Gladstone and Disraeli Cover
This illustrated cover uses a 1d. stamp, lettered DA, which is from plate 94 from Archer’s experimental perforations. It has been used on a letter from William Gladstone to Benjamin Disraeli, sent from the House of Commons on 7 March 1853.
Gladstone held the role of Chancellor of the Exchequer at this time, having succeeded Disraeli in the role, and went on to become Prime Minister on four separate occasions. Disraeli went on to become Prime Minister twice. There was always a strong rivalry between these men, with them both succeeding each other in these roles throughout their careers.(words by Gabby of ANDREW G LAJER PHILATELIST with thanks).
