This November 21, 1970 six cent stamp (Sc #1420) of the USA commemorates the 350th anniversary of the landing of 120 British colonists aboard the merchant ship Mayflower at Plymouth, Massachusetts.

From history.com, "Nearly 40 of these passengers were Protestant Separatists - they called themselves 'Saints' - who hoped to establish a new church in the new world. Today, we often refer to the colonists who crossed the Atlantic on the Mayflower as Pilgrims."

Most of Sweden's "tall ships" stamps through the 1980's have been shown on page 1 of this thread, but I believe this one was omitted. This 1967 10 ore Swedish definitive (Facit #613) depicts a detail from a 1650 engraving of a ship in Oresund by W. Hartman.

On July 2, 1997 Estonia issued this 5.50 kroon stamp as a part of its three-stamp set of "Modern Estonian Ships". Stamp depicts the four-masted barkentine Tormilind. The Tormilind was most likely sunk in the Kiel Canal (Germany) in August 1944.

From aeliital123.blogspot.com, "The Tormilind (Eng: Albatross), a barkentine, the most beautiful sailing-ship in Estonia, was built on the north Estonian coast (in Hara Bay) in 1922. Gross displacement:495 tons."

In the USSR, it received its new name in honor of the famous polar explorer Georgy Sedov (1877-1914), who died while exploring the Arctic





in honor of Sedov, the legendary icebreaker "Georgy Sedov" was also named
