POSTCARD SENT TO A GERMAN SHIP IN ST.THOMAS - POST TREATED

St.Thomas Marts 1 or 2  - to S.M.S Panther (German Naval) in St.Thomas harbor - Local ship arrival postmark Marts 2 1903. Commercial mail rather than philatelic  - message on the reverse. Very rare. 

The German Navel was in St.Thomas because of the Venezuelan blockade  - it had just ended.

 

St.Thomas March 21 to S.M.S Panther - no arrival postmark - sealed and not opened. Philatelic.

St.Thomas March 30 to German Naval Flagship “Vineta” German Consulate - no arrival mark - but sealed and than opened.
Maybe commercial. The bisected - inverted frame - print 4.
