Danish West Indies: Stamps: Scott 11-15  
Scott numbers have been given for these listings. If you would prefer to examine the stamps before purchasing, or you are seeking stamps (or condition or quality) not listed here, you are also welcome to send your want list using Scott, Facit, or AFA numbers.
The images shown in this section are standard images of the issues from my image library; they are presented to show the designs of the stamp issues and not to show the specific individual stamps being offered. The centering of the stamps in the images is usually Superb or VF quality; again these are not images of the individual stamps being offered. Most DWI stamps had between two and eight printings, thus colors vary greatly; the colors in the images are random printings/colors.
All the listed conditions and qualities were in stock at the moment this list was prepared and I endeavor to maintain them in stock and to keep this website updated. However, my stock changes daily and (to paraphrase) good stamps are hard to find. If you are willing to accept a different grade or quality if an item is temporarily out of stock, please let me know when ordering (add a comment at the conclusion of the shopping cart process) and please also let me know of any alternates you will consider.
See additional examples of Danish West Indies Stamps in the following Sections:
Gallery (Selected stamps of particularly high quality or rarity).
Bargain Stamps (Attractive stamps with slight defects).
Specialized Stamps (Varieties, Blocks, Cancellations, and other interesting items).

12 [1873 14 cent Bicolor, Normal Frame] Mint Average centering (typical for this stamp). With a tiny thin speck, and expertly repaired at the bottom with a couple tiny areas of the design painted in, and then regummed. (The paper of this stamp is always extremely thin and fragile, thus perforation problems or much more severe damage is quite common). Approximately 1000 sheets (100,000 stamps) were printed, but 90,158 stamps were destroyed by the post office in 1883, thus the net quantity that could have existed of the normal frame stamps is approximately 9,645. Of that quantity, many were lost or destroyed over time, especially due to the very thin paper and the fact that these were used either on overseas mail or on internal postal accounting documents (which were mostly destroyed). A reasonable appearing example of a very scarce stamp.

12a [1873 14 cent Bicolor, INVERTED FRAME] Mint with F-VF+ centering. The gum appears to be original, but the gum has been disturbed (typical for this stamp) and has a moderate hinge remnant. There is a very slight amount of aging on a couple of the perf tips, but generally the appearance and color are much nicer and stronger than usual. This stamp (and the normal frame version as well) almost always has at least a couple blunted perfs; in this case the two right corner perfs are rounded, but all the other perfs are excellent. (The paper of this issue is always extremely thin and fragile, thus perforation problems or much more severe damage is quite common). Approximately 1000 sheets (100,000 stamps, of which only 2,000 were inverted frames) were printed, but 90,158 stamps were destroyed by the post office in 1883, thus the net quantity that could have existed of the normal frame stamps is approximately 9,645 and ONLY ABOUT 197 OF THE INVERTED FRAME STAMP COULD HAVE EXISTED. Of that quantity, many were lost or destroyed over time, especially due to the very thin paper and the fact that these were used either on overseas mail or on internal postal accounting documents (which were mostly destroyed). Additionally, keep in mind that the existence of inverted frame stamps was not discovered until decades later, thus nobody knew to save the rare inverted frame examples back then. The remaining number of inverted frame examples is extremely small -- I would guess less than 50 and perhaps even fewer than 30! The centering of this issue is usually terrible. This example has rare unusually nice centering with unusually strong color. While the rounded corner perforations are a negative factor, the nice centering and strong color greatly compensate for the perforations. The 2020 Facit value is SEK 30,000 [about $3,600 1/2020] but that is for the usual centering which is usually only Average or maybe Fine. This is one of those stamp issues that should be acquired whenever it is offered, without hesitation and with tolerance of the realities of the quality of available examples. The rarest regularly issued stamp of the Danish West Indies. Accompanied by Jay Smith color certificate with "lifetime guarantee".

13a (Gray Violet, Thick Paper: 50c Print 2), Facit #13b, AFA 13 Print 2 [1879 (1885 printing) 50 Cent Bicolor, Perf 14 x 13.5, Normal Frame] Mint Fine+, original gum, hinged. Facit 2020 value SEK 3000 = $360 [12/2019]. A very scarce stamp that is seldom offered, but when 13a is offered it is often misidentified and is really #13 (especially in the U.S.). This example is correct!
