David: it is a lifeboat. But it is a funny observation, there are more Dutch stamps from the same period that can be viewed in different ways. The low value definitives of the 1920s have a flying dove, but it could also be a bat. At least that is what I see in it.

Bluenose, under full sail, is portrayed on the 1929 Canadian Bluenose postage stamp as well as on two other stamps issued in 1982 and 1999 and also appears on the current Nova Scotia licence plate. The depiction of a generic schooner on the Canadian dime has for years been commonly known as the Bluenose. In 2002, the government of Canada declared the depiction on the dime to be the Bluenose.

Those are great Spanish stamps, great depiction of Columbus' ships.

Aaaah, the Canadian Bluenose, (actually a montage of two different pictures of the Bluenose taken while she was racing off Halifax Harbour),


(Not mine but I did get to handle/see it.)

. . . and the new Canada wildlife series (a $10 Whale is due out this year 2009, I wonder if it will be bigger than the $8 Grizzly bear?)


(Borrowed from eBay after I complemented the owner on his arrangement of the stamps.)

Of course, any personalized stamp with yourself on it has a certain strange attraction ...
