Bluenose, Queen of the North Atlantic, built at Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, undefeated winner of the International Fishermen's Trophy against fishing schooners from USA (1921-1938).  Stamp issued by Canada Post on January 6, 1929.  

The ship is actually featured on one of the sides of the Canadian dime.  She was wrecked off of Haiti on January 28, 1946.

And, let me take this time to also wish everyone a Happy Canada Day today!
