Showing items in Stamps and Covers - Danish West Indies

Postage stamps, booklets, flight, censored and maritime mail and philatelic covers of Danish West Indies, now the U.S. Virgin Islands for sale

Danish West Indies, now the U.S. Virgin Islands has much to offer the philatelist.  The stamp issues provide a fascinating study and for the postal historian there is a wealth of material as so much early mail was routed through the islands.  There are a number of philatelic books on D.W.I. philately but, in my opinion, the best is the three volume work, Danish West Indies Mails, 1754-1917 edited by V.E. Engstrom.

Post and packing is extra but does not increase however many items are ordered.  Inland £1, Europe £1.50 and Overseas £2
