Roman/French/British/Dutch/Tibetan strikers

From the bottom: two Roman strikers. Next are two French flint strikers based on a painting dated 1566. The top left and very top are Brit/French/Dutch/Italian trade strikers from the 1700's. That top right flat one is Chinese/Tibetan designed to be sewn into the bottom of a leather pouch.

From the album:
