St.Thomas February 27 - sent to Christiansted - backstamped Christiansted February 28.
The local postcard rate was 1 cent - but the St.Thomas Post office had depleted its supply of 1 cents from February 10 to March 1.
The DWI did not have a 1 cent postal stationery card at this time - so the bisected 4 cents stamp was the lowest
denomination stamp avaiable and the sender had no choice - but to overpay with 1 cent.

Only two postcards sent
locally with overpayment during the 1 cent depletion period have been recorded.
