One of the things that made Stamporama fun over the years was the different contests offered by members. Like trying to guess the identity of a stamp after pieces of it were slowly revealed. It seems like there has not been a contest for a while, so this is going to be a new contest for all members. It is designed to be fun and to perhaps acquaint us with aspects of Stamporama we had not explored.

The contest consists of answering a short 10 question multiple choice quiz in which answers can be derived from the SOR website. (As a hint you may want to enter the member’s area). The first 10 correct responses sent to me will be deemed the winners and the submitter will be eligible to select one of the prizes detailed below- on a first-come first serve basis. PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWERS ONLINE, THEY WILL NOT COUNT AND MAY CONFUSE OTHERS! Just click on my user name in the box on the left then click “Send a Message” to forward your answers.

So here is the quiz:
1. Who was the founder of Stamporama?
a. George Linn b. Jerry Ahern c. Bill Gross
2. What does a SOR membership cost per year? a. $10 b. $25 c. $0
3. Who is the creator of an SOR Exhibit entitled “Odd Shaped Stamps”?
a. David Greg b. Roy Lingen c. Kelly Fleming
4. The Oct/Nov issue of the Rambler featured an article on:
a. Special Delivery stamps b. Penny Black Project edition c. Fournier Forgeries
5. Which of the following members has sold the most lots per recent member profiles? (apologies if there is someone with more than this leader)
a. Soundcrest b. BrechiniteUK c. Cardstamp
6. On the SOR Penny Page of Penny Blacks which position is missing from the table? a. OE b. AB c. TK
7. Who authored the SOR Article “How to Identify German 1945 AMG Occupation Issue Printings”?
a. Steve Swain b. Michael Generali c. John Macco
8. What is the maximum number of pages in an approval book? a. 12 b. 18 c. 24
9. Who is the SOR webmaster? a. Tim Auld b. Dan Cohen c. Ralph Anavy
10. Membership in SOR is required to POST messages on the SOR discussion board. a. False b. True

In terms of prizes, I am offering the remainders of 10+ approval books that have expired or been closed. With your answers please specify your top 5 choices from these options. Note: condition of stamps is mixed and there is duplication. Here are the options:
Option A: Israel, Used and Mint, 114 Stamps, much duplication
Option B: Iran/Persia, mostly used 1891-1978, 80 stamps- TAKEN
Option C: U. S. Commemoratives, 1893-1971, Scott# 230-1423, used, 450+ stamps- TAKEN
Option D: Ceylon/Sri Lanka, used, all dates, 57 stamps
Option E: Bulgaria, mostly used, 1886-1992, 84 stamps- TAKEN
Option F: Cuba, Haiti, Dominicana, Colombia, used, mostly older, 166 stamps (45 added after book retired)- TAKEN
Option G: Ireland, Used, all ages, 89 stamps - TAKEN
Option H: U.S. Commemoratives, 1971-2011, Scott #’s 1435+, 171 stamps TAKEN
Option I. France Definitives, Used, All ages, 146 stamps- TAKEN
Option J. Mongolia, mostly CTO, large commemoratives, newer, 57 stamps

To enter the contest just send me an email (by clicking my user name) with the following:
1. Your answers (i.e. 1e 2f 3e 4g etc.)
2. Your top 5 desired Options (i.e. F,A,C,J,D)
3. Your name and mailing address

I will pay for the postage and mail out the prizes as they are won. If you are a winner but your Options have been taken by an earlier winner, I’ll contact you with the remaining options.
Good luck! Remember, no posting of answers here!
