CONTEST - Win a new World Paper Money Errors book!

I have two copies of the new World Paper Money Errors book that was just released to give away. So, instead of just randomly picking two people, I am going to run a contest.

The Serial Number Database has been loaded up with two secret numbers. The first two forum members to add a note to the SNDB that matches one of those secret numbers will win a book! The odds of winning are about 1:500 (I think). The more notes you add to the SNDB, the better chance you have of winning.

To enter the contest, simply add your notes to the Serial Number Database!

If the SNDB declares you a winner, you need to email me a scan or photo of the winning note to confirm that you actually have it. If you've already deposited the note back to the bank, or if you've spent it, your win will be disqualified. Only new entries to the SNDB as of this posting are eligible. Winners must pay the cost of shipping ($13 - Xpresspost) to have the book mailed to them. If you happen to know me personally and can pick the book up at a local show at my discretion, I will waive the shipping fee. Estimated prize value: USD$34.95. There are two separate prizes available to be won, but you can only win once. Only notes entered to the SNDB after the start of the contest are eligible to win.

If you have any questions about this contest, please email or PM me.

[edit]THIS CONTEST IS NOW OVER. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED BY ENTERING NOTES TO THE SERIAL NUMBER DATABASE, AND CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNERS![/edit]

Holy smokes that is a gorgeous looking prize!  I am going to have to step into a bank and cycle some notes again (been away and moving for last few weeks).

Brent, this looks awesome!

Congratulations to mmars for winning the second copy of World Paper Money Errors!

This concludes our contest. I hope everyone enjoyed having the opportunity to pick up a brand new error note book.

I am working on some additional activities related to the SNDB, but for the time being, they're still secret. Stay tuned to the forums for more information later on.

Congratulations again to both of our winners, Gary_T and mmars!

And of course, thank you to the publisher for donating these copies so that we could give them away to two lucky forum members.

Thanks so much for the world error book. It looks good but I haven't looked at it closely as I've been busy with work.

 Thanks BWJM and all the other administrators for all you do to help the collecting community.
