Ships on meter stamps



These pages show some of my meter stamps showing ships. If possible, I want to identify the ships shown on the meters. Sometimes this is easy, because the name is readable or because the ship has a characteristic shape. Sometimes it is impossible, because it is clearly a fantasy drawing. Please contact me if you can supply additional information on the identification of the ships, or if you don't agree with my identification.
If you have meter stamps that may fit in my collection, e-mail me, maybe we can swap. I have several items to exchange, also on other subjects.
If you're interested in collecting meter stamps, look at the website of the Dutch association of meter stamp collectors: Frankeerstempel.nl.
