Black Sam’s Gold is a ship font family with 3 styles that was created by Redruth’s Basement Software in 1999.
Based on the lettering of an actual period map of a pirate shipwreck off Cape Cod, the font also allows for many of the special characters and ligatures of Middle and Elizabethan English, and looks good doing it, too. Rugged and distinctive, it is also legible at much smaller sizes than many stylized fonts allow, and has a large extended character set. Two dingbat fonts are included as well, including a playing-card font.
You can use this font for both personal & commercial.
