Bill's FREE Cuba Minisheet Competition - Eleven to give away!

Post by Bill H UK »

These Cuba minisheets came to me recently as part of a deal. I don't collect them, so I've split them into 3 prizes to give away in a little contest, if anyone's interested.

The usual format for my giveaways - guess the number of stamps from my junk tin in the picture.
Specify your 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice of prize.
Nearest guess to the correct number wins their 1st choice.
2nd nearest wins their first choice, unless it's already gone.
3rd nearest gets the remaining prize.

CLUE: The number you seek will be between 50 and 150

First, the prizes:
PRIZE 'A'
PRIZE A
PRIZE A
PRIZE 'B'
PRIZE B
PRIZE B
PRIZE 'C'
PRIZE C
PRIZE C
Now here's the pile for you to guess the number of stamps (this isn't a prize!)
How Many Stamps??
How Many Stamps??

Your entry should look like this:
Number = 999

C
B
A


You can enter ONCE for yourself, plus ONCE for a specified Stampboards chum.
One prize per person!
Entries open to ALL, no restrictions on posts or membership, as long as you were a member before today!

Entries close one week from today - 9am Tuesday 9th August, UK time.
Collecting mint British Empire / Colonial up to the 1960s, Bridlington & East Yorkshire postal history, and wacky postcards.

I will send mails out via Stampboards to Lima34 and Belti - please reply with your postal addresses.
I think I can find Maggie Mailbox's address somewhere on these boards :lol: , so I'll get that straight off.

Appropriately, I see this is my Post No. 10,000 on these boards!

That concludes this contest, well done the winners and thanks to everyone who took part!
Stay tuned - more giveaways soon!
