Danish West Indies: Covers: 1903 Bisect Covers  
Scott numbers have been used unless otherwise indicated. All items are available for viewing on approval.
Four cent stamps were officially allowed to be bisected due to a shortage of two cent stamps. Use started 20 January 1903 and continued until 23 May on St. Thomas and 4 June on St. Croix (Christiansted and Frederiksted). Typical use is for the two cent domestic letter rate, however two cent foreign post card rate uses do exist (very scarce). Double weight printed matter items probably also exist, but are rare. Only one bisected example of the Perf 14 Printing I (ultramarine) Bicolor is recorded. However, the second printing of the Perf 14 is available. The Perf 12.75 4 cent Bicolor had two printings (greenblue vs blue) as well as various inverted frame positions of both colors; all exist bisected though the blue color is scarcer and the inverted frame examples are very scarce. The bisects are diagonal and are often collected in all four possible positions of each of the available printings. Additionally some collectors seek examples with all the different postmarks in use at the time. First day and last day uses are also sought. Because of the exciting nature of the bisects, they were also used on "cacheted" souvenir covers which are avidly sought after. I usually have more examples available than are shown on my website and in my price list. If you are seeking printings, positions, or postmarks not listed here, please inquire. All items are available on approval.

Uses local within Frederiksted are unusual, as are uses in the "middle period"; most of the surviving covers are uses within the first two weeks -- uses later, such as this one 5+ weeks later, are unusual. Very neat and attractive.

18a, Clear-Blue Printing [1901 4 Cent Perf 12.75 Bicolor] VF BISECT (upper left corner) on full cover with ST. THOMAS 21 January 1903 cancel (second day of use), used locally. Two folds, both well away from the stamp and postmark. The addressing and appearance of this cover strongly suggest to me that it is a "genuine" real non-philatelic use -- such examples are quite unusual.

18a, Clear-Blue Printing [1901 4 Cent Perf 12.75 Bicolor] VF BISECT (lower right corner) on full cover, with ST. THOMAS 30 January 1903 cancel, via CHRISTIANSTED, to West End (FREDERIKSTED), with transit and receiver postmarks on reverse. Worn, with central crease/tear (near the stamp, but not touching the stamp). However, still attractive in the album. By the appearance, and addressed to an attorney, one can imagine that this may be non-philatelic.
