U.S. Scott #C12 x6 (4-block and pair) [5 cent Globe and Wings, Perf 11 x 11 Flat Plate] (Fine, F-VF) on 1930 FAM Route 10 (actually listed in the catalog for FAM 6 carried under contract for FAM 10) first flight cover leg "ST. THOMAS / V.I. / #1 duplex" (U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS) to FRENCH GUIANA. AAMS FAM #F6-42a (5th edition, 1981); 581 pieces of mail carried on this leg. Originated and canceled 4 October 1930 at "PHILADELPHIA / GERMANTOWN STA.", via Miami, to ST. THOMAS where it was held for the 11 November flight -- and then RE-CANCELED at ST. THOMAS. Arrived "CAYENNE / GUYANE-FRANCAISE"; the arrival occurred on 12 November, but the mail was not backstamped until 20 November pending instructions from Pairs (according to AAMS 5th edition). The origination of the service was planned for 21 October, but was delayed due to a revolution in Brazil (the endpoint of the service). From Cayenne, instructions routed the cover back to Germantown instead of onward to Brazil, but there are no further postmarks. Two different airmail labels: international blue label covering an ornate domestic label. Very interesting and attractive. Early first flight covers involving St. Thomas are unusual -- this was just 12 years after the Danes sold DWI to the U.S.

THOMAS and with 11 November violet handstamp. Large and ornate, violet arrival undated handstamp on reverse. Attractive violet handstamped cachet picturing a plane in flight and outline of South America, with the text "COMPLETING THE LINDBERGH CIRCLE". (Lindbergh was involved in pioneering the Central and Northern South America routes.) Very interesting and attractive. Early first flight covers involving St. Thomas are unusual -- this was just 13 years after the Danes sold DWI to the U.S. A scarcer flight cover.

Liberia 5c Alligator stamp on 9 November 1967 SHIP MAIL cover from the MV Almaflora (Monrovia, Liberian flag), posted with machine cancellation "CHARLOTTE AMALIE / V.I." and with 4-RING TARGET CANCEL. Also with violet "PAQUEBOT" handstamp. Appears to be philatelic, to the U.S.; with U.S. sorter markings on the backside, so it did go through the mail. The use of the 4-ring target cancellation is a surprise to me; I do not know if this is the same device still in use since the DWI days (but it sure looks like it) or if it is a later device.
