Here is the US 1931 issue celebrating the sesquicentennial of the Battle of Yorktown which effectively ended the War for Independence.
Marshal Rochambeau (1725-1807) commanded French ground forces, Washington the colonists, and Admiral DeGrasse ( 1722-1788) the French fleet which blockaded the coast until Cornwallis surrendered.
Scott 703.
I've always liked the vivid red (ed: actually carmine rose) and black contrast on this one.

On October 5, 1984 Denmark issued this 2.70 kroner stamp (Facit #843) to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the birth of Norwegian-born writer, playwright, historian and philosopher Ludvig Holberg (1684-1754). The designer used a drawing of Holberg meeting two gentlemen by Wilhelm Marstand (1810-1873) as the basis for the artwork of this stamp.

From rundtomholberg.dk, "According to tradition, Holberg should at some point have met an officer and a learned counterpart who defiantly said to Holberg: 'We do not go out of the way of a fool', to which Holberg replied: 'I like to go out of the way of two.' Holberg meets Jean de France and Jacob von Tyboe here - two characters from the comedies."

Here is a French issue of 1985 commemorating the centennial of rabies vaccination. It's after a period engraving ostensibly showing Pasteur innoculating a seated patient. An observer standing by makes up our third.

Sc. 1979/Y&T 2371
Use of beige stock makes it rather different from most French stamps of the 80s.

Here are the high and low values from Finland's January 7, 1946 "Industry and Agriculture" Red Cross charity set of four stamps. The 1 markka + 25 pennia value (Facit #311) depicts 3 fisherman with nets, and the 10 + 2.50 markka stamp (Facit #314) shows 3 loggers. These stamps were printed by copperplate recess, with letterpress-printed crosses.

Lots of interesting variety in this thread.

Here are two French stamps.
The first celebrates the World Cup, held in France 4-19 June 1938. Italy knocked out the home team in the quarterfinals, and went on to defeat Hungary in the final. WW II then intervened and the Cup was not held again until 1950. During the war, an Italian FIFA VP took the trophy home from a Roman bank vault and hid it under his bed so it would be safe....

Second from 1939 is a semi-postal which Scott would have us believe was to benefit French seamen, but which both Yvert and Maury indicate was to raise funds for a national monument, a statue by Felix Desruelles commemorating mariners lost at sea. Depicting a widow and two children, it was to be placed in Boulogne-sur-Mer, but some brief googling does not disclose it even being completed.
