CONTEST - Win a copy of New Zealand History Noted!

{http://www.cdnpapermoney.com/sndb/images/contestbanner_nzhistory2.jpg}

Over the past year or so, we have run several contests in conjunction with the Serial Number Database:

The winning continues here at the Canadian Paper Money Forums! This is the second of the Paul Wallis Memorial SNDB Contests in memory of the founder of this website, Paul Wallis who passed away not too long ago. The contests are supported by several individuals, including:
  • twoinvallarta: Donated $500 towards prizes and shipping expenses
  • Robert Pepping: Provided the prizes for this current contest at a reduced cost
  • www.polymernotes.org by Stane Straus: Donated the prizes for the Aug. 2011 contest

[imga=right]http://nzhnoted.weebly.com/uploads/5/1/1/2/5112610/369342.gif?248[/imga]This contest, proudly supported by twoinvallarta, consists of two brand-new copies of Robert Pepping's book New Zealand History Noted, a book about the history and banknotes of New Zealand from a uniquely numismatic perspective. The books are provided at a reduced cost from the author, Robert Pepping, and are paid for by twoinvallarta's donation, including Xpresspost shipping to the winner. New Zealand has a rich history and its banknotes play a large role in this island nation.  This book is a "must-have" for any numismatic library.

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 copy of this great book! The odds of winning one of these prize packs are about 1:500. 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.  Estimated prize value: CAD$80. 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. Members who have won a previous prize within the last six months are ineligible.

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