Most DWI postcards mailed in the early 1900´s foreign destinations were from tourists and were mailed to Europa or the USA.
The UPU had 2 cents foreign mail rate for postcards, and most foreign postcards with a bisected stamp had
no massage and was philatelic. The printed matter rate was 1 cent for the first 50 gram and 2 cents for 51-100 gram. Postcard without massage mailed overseas -they were overpaid with one cent since they was qualified as printet matter and the only
