Ships on stamps! Ancient ships on stamps! And medieval ones, too! In order: an Egyptian barque, a Phoenician ship, a Greek trireme, a Roman merchantman, the Viking Gokstad, a Prussian cog, a medieval holk, and a Genoese carrack. Which of these pretty keels would your face like to cause a thousand to be launched by reason of?
