WHAT IN THE WORLD  index page

In the early days of television, a fascinating program was aired locally in the Philadelphia, PA area called What in the World?


The program was sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania. Each week several archaeological items were presented for the examination of experts to see if they could guess the purpose and provenance of each item. The experts were adept but sometimes stumped too.


Inspired by this series, our "What in the World?" quizzes present to our resident experts, namely you, dear readers, unusual or most curious items found on worldwide postage stamps.


See if you can identify the subjects of the stamps appearing to the right by clicking on the image. Answers provided, of course!
