WINSTON CHURCHILL Prime Minister 1st Day Cover Winston Churchill Stamp....

On October 9, 1974, the Royal Mail of Great Britain issued a series of stamps to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Sir Winston Churchill. Shown here is a genuine First Day Cover, an envelope with the stamp, depicting Churchill as Prime Minister, cancelled from the city of issue (House of Commons, London) on the first day of issue captioned above. Note the special postmark depicting his monogram designed expressly to cancel this set of stamps on their 'birthday.'

The cachet (artwork on the envelope) features a photo of Churchill as Prime Minister, a position he held from 1940 to 1945 and 1951 to 1955.  The company that produced this cover has also written a brief commentary about Churchill as Prime Minister, which we've included.  Historic, collectible, this cover represents a special tribute to one of the most influential men of the twentieth century.

Double matted in blue & white, it's sized to fit a standard 8x10 frame.   ***Certificate of Authenticity Included***
