DWI - U.S. Combination cover: DWI Scott #43 [1905 5 bit Frederik VIII] (Fine) and U.S. 2 cent Washington (F-VF) on 8 May 1917 cover with CHRISTIANSTED postmark (DWI style device), addressed to "Otto Kieldrup, Christiansted, St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands of U.S.A.". Both stamps could be counted as valid postage at 5 bit = 1 cent. The domestic letter rate was 10 bit, thus this cover/letter is overfranked (but typically so), however, this is probably the lowest domestic letter combination franking I have had (I do not recall having a 1c + 5b). As are most Transition Period covers, Kieldrup covers are philatelic and in his case were probably usually handed back to him instead of mailed to him. If it were not for philatelists like Kieldrup, we would not have many early interesting covers.
