33 [1905 20 bit Christian IX] (VF) 4-BLOCK on 30 October 1912 commercial REGISTERED cover from ST. THOMAS to Germany, with HAMBURG 18 November 1912 backstamp. Facit 2018 value for ordinary use of a single is SEK 1800 = $215 [10/2018]. No catalog provide any value guidance for DWI used blocks, however, in my experience used blocks of this stamp are quite scarce; off cover this block would likely be valued around $125. This is most certainly a commercial use; the envelope is very heavy paper, with a wax seal, that was almost only used for registered covers with substantial contents. Very attractive and scarce.

1877 January 15 folded letter, complete with contents, from ST. THOMAS, via LONDON and CALAIS to PARIS, France, with all transit markings, etc. On reverse, originating ST. THOMAS "A" 20 mm 15 January postmark (Facit #31 black; DWI MAILS 2000 BR19d). Arriving in LONDON 29 January on reverse, then (on front) French "ANGL. / AMB. CALAIS" transit for incoming mail from England, and then on reverse PARIS, all still on the 29th. On front bears British due marking in BLUE "T / 1-10" (listed in DWI MAILS 2000 as Anglo-French accounting mark BR32c with a value premium range of $300-600) -- this is the first example of this marking that I can recall having had in the last 45 years. Following that is a French "17" due marking. The content is an unusual and attractive business letter in Spanish. It is also unusual to find stampless letters this late; by this time most mail outbound from DWI was pre-paid with stamps, but in a few cases, the recipient was still willing to tolerate paying the postage. To add to the interest of this unusual cover, the British post office in DWI ceased operations 31 August 1877. I believe that this is the latest DWI-originated stampless cover to a foreign country that I have had in 45 years.

1844 April 29 folded letter, complete with contents, from ST. THOMAS, via LONDON and BOULOGNE to BORDEAUX, France, with all transit markings, etc. On reverse, originating ST. THOMAS 30 mm, with-serifs font and double half-circles at bottom "double line arc", with day and month, 29 April postmark (Facit #23 black; DWI MAILS 2000 BR16b). On front, Anglo-French accounting mark, red boxed "COLONIES / & c. ART. 12." (Facit #33 valued 2018 at SEK 4500, DWI MAILS 2000 #BR28 valued at $450 tp $750 premium -- this marking was used only during 1843-1845). Arriving in LONDON 23 May on reverse, then (on front) French boxed 25 May "ANGL. / BOULOGNE" transit for incoming mail from England, and then on reverse 27 May BORDEAUX. The content is a long business letter. Very neat and attractive.

21 June 1825 cover with complete letter, written in Spanish (unusual), mailed from St. Thomas, to London, received 5 August with fully dated British receiver. Nice strike of the framed, black "PACKET LETTER" postmark on reverse (as usual). Facit #9, DWI Mails #BR10a with 3 mm letters of Robertson type P3. (Facit incorrectly limits the period of use to 1818-22; 1815-1842 would be more appropriate.) British 2/2 rate marking on front. DWI Mails 2nd edition, pages32-37 discusses this interesting period in which there was no British post office at St. Thomas. Though not "rare", nice examples of this marking and use are hard to find.

ARGENTINA 6 centavos postal card sent 26 May 1894 from BUENOS AIRES, via RIO DE JANEIRO, via ST. THOMAS, to MEXICO, seemingly without a town name. In Mexico, first received in VERA CRUZ, then MEXICO D.F. (Mexico City), SUCORS, and finally received at LISTA, with all Mexican markings over a span of 5 days! This demonstrates a tremendous effort by the Mexican post office! Clear ST. THOMAS postmark, on front of card, showing transit through DWI. Quite unusual.

35, 36, 45 [1905 40 and 50 bit Christian IX, 1908 15 bit Frederik VII] (VF, F-VF) on 29 January 1917 REGISTERED cover from ST. THOMAS to the U.S., with violet St. Thomas registry mark Type 9, with U.S. receivers. Furthermore, the 50 bit bears AFA plate variety #29x [colored vertical line in lower left margin, position 88 in the sheet]. Scarce use of these denominations and scarce combination. The Facit 2017 on-cover values for the stamps are SEK 3000, 3500, and 1500, respectively. Very handsome and colorful cover in excellent quality.

50 [50 bit Frederik VIII] (Fine) correct solo franking on clean and attractive 7 January 1916 registered cover from St. Thomas to the U.S., with backstamps, and with a faint VERY RARE fancy boxed "AR" (Avis Reception; return receipt) handstamp (front, upper left). In this era there was no additional charge for the return receipt service. This marking is very rare from DWI -- it appears that only five or six covers have been recorded on mail from DWI, but this rarity has been greatly overlooked by DWI collectors.

PONTA DELGADA (Portuguese Colony) 1900 picture post card (nice working harbor scene) sent to France, via St. Thomas. The lower left corner of the stamp was rounded before applying to the card. Any type of card or cover from Ponta Delgada is quite unusual, however, a usage via DWI is a rarity.

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.

34 [1905 25 bit Christian IX] (F-VF) on 19 March 1917 commercial cover from ST.

Backside of envelope with some mounting damage, but the scarcity of the late use is quite important. Facit 2011 value for ordinary use is SEK 1000 = $145 [1/2011].
