The United States Virgin Islands (technically called the “Virgin Islands of the United States”) have used regular US stamps (and currency) since being purchased in 1917. Before then, these islands were the Danish West Indies, and special stamps were issued for use under that name by Denmark.
Collectors who concentrate on stamps and covers of the US Virgin Islands these days tend to look for interesting covers, with postmarks relating to the islands, and any stamps and philatelic collectibles that have the US Virgin Islands as their subject, or that make reference to them. This may include air post pieces, first day covers, and other interesting items.
