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.

22 [1900 5 cent blue Arms] (VF+) on 3 April 1902 cover from "ST: THOMAS" to San Juan, Porto Rico, by the 5 cent inter-island rate for which this stamp was issued. Other than to Porto Rico and Guadeloupe, there were very few qualifying solo uses for this 5-cent stamp, thus the Facit 2020 on-cover value of SEK 4000! This example is neatly addressed and has PONCE and SAN JUAN, Porto Rico, backstamps. The cover was roughly opened at upper right resulting in some paper loss on the front, but it is very attractive and remarkably scarce.

6e, 7, 10c [1878-1890s Perf 14 x 13.5 Bicolors: 3c inverted frame, 4c normal frame, 10c inverted frame] (VF / F-VF) on beautiful 5 September 1896 registered cover to the U.S. Clear and sharp FREDERIKSTED sans-serif cancellations and well-struck (for these) vertical magenta DWI registry handstamp. Also with faint U.S. incoming registered mail number in greenish blue. Ten cents foreign postage rate with seven cents registry fee. Extremely thin paper envelope -- the thinnest I have ever seen from DWI -- to allow more weight for the contents (but a miracle that it survived in such great quality). Neatly opened on the left end. Clear U.S. backstamps; it reached New York in only seven days. If these were only single-colored stamps, we would call this a 3-color cover, but as bicolors it is a stunning 6-color cover! Wonderful example in every respect -- seldom seen so nice!

15 [1895 "10 / CENTS / 1895" surcharge on 50 cent Bicolor design] (VF+) solo use on beautiful 29 October 1909 registered cover from ST. THOMAS to the British Colony island country Montserrat, with "ST. KITTS" transit postmark on the reverse. Very clearly struck violet ST. THOMAS registry handstamp. Very neat and attractive in all respects. Addressed to "Rev. S. Meister" at Montserrat; however, his correct initial was L for Leonard. It has been confirmed that Reverend Meister was the Catholic priest on Montserrat from 1905 to 1910. It is known that Meister was a philatelist. With the St. Kitts transit postmark, we know that this cover has actually traveled through the mails. Whether it is of philatelic origin is not known to me, but it could easily be non-philatelic mailed to a philatelist as he bought stamps from many sources, and generally maintained a large correspondence, sent to him at his various church postings. There is a "cover hinge" (oversized stamp hinge) on the reverse that can be removed. Facit 2020 lists the solo use on cover at SEK 4000, however that is for either the basic foreign letter rate (the vast majority to the U.S. or Europe) or the domestic 3c rate plus 7c registration (seldom seen). However, this example is the 5c islands rate plus 5c registration, only possible starting 1 January 1902. This use in 1909 was after the 1905 conversion to Bits currency, however, the stamp remained valid (25 new bits = 5 old cents). As such, this is an extremely scarce use, rate, and destination. Most examples I have seen of this stamp on any type of covers are nowhere near this attractive. This example is certainly in the top echelon of quality and scarcity of use.

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.

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.

Private Ship Letter: St. Thomas to Bordeaux, France. 1845 January 26 folded letter, complete with contents, from ST. THOMAS (clear from dateline and contents), marked via ship "Jean Evariste", to BORDEAUX, France. There are no DWI postal markings or British mail packet related postal markings (no such markings are expected on a private ship letter). On front, Arriving first in France with red maritime entry "OUTRE-MER / PAVILLAC" 24 February postmark; I believe this to be the quarantine port for Bordeaux. Two French manuscript rate marks. On reverse 25 February BORDEAUX receiver. The content is a long business letter. Such private ship letters to France are unusual in this period; they were an attempt to avoid the high cost of the British packet mails, but perhaps with less reliability. Very neat and attractive; amazingly fresh for an item 173 years old!

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.

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.

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. THOMAS to the U.S. Used less than two weeks before the U.S. purchase of the islands, this is remarkably late genuine commercial use of this stamp issue. 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].
