St.Thomas February 27, sent to Christiansted - backstamped Christiansted February 28.
The lokal postcard rate was 1 cent - but the St.Thomas Post office had depleted its supply of 1 cents from February 10 to Marts 1.
The DWI had not a 1 cent postal stationery card, at this time, so the bisected 4 cent stamp was the lowest denomination
stamp avaiable and the sender had no choice but to overpay by one cent.
Only two postcards sent local with overpayment when 1 cent stamps was sold out - have been recorded.
