In this giveaway, there are two prizes: The "Contest Prize" and the "Grand Prize."

The Contest Prize is 42 nice quality used stamps, still on paper, all from a single country, in a black Vario stock sheet!

The first member to name the country the stamps are from will win the Contest Prize.

I will post clues, approximately one each day. These will be mainly scans of small pieces of each of the 42 stamps.

To enter the contest, you need to start a new topic in any forum. This must be a quality post, with a good descriptive title. If it is a good topic, it will generate interest among the other members. You will want to get a large number of replies to your new topic. This will give you a shot a winning the Grand Prize!

When the contest is over, the Grand Prize will be awarded to the member whose new topic received the most high quality replies from other members. Low quality replies such as "cool" and "sweet" are not counted. In effect, high quality replies to your new topic are votes for you to win the Grand Prize!

Post your contest entries in this thread.

Each entry must contain:
1) A link to the new topic you started.
2) Your guess as to which country the 42 stamps are from.

The limit is one entry per member per day! Quality, not quantity.

The Grand Prize will be a good one, so start some interesting new topics that everyone will enjoy discussing!

Good luck!

It seems that nr-notrare is confident in his answer, so I guess theres no use in my answering it again, seeing as I would be copying..

nr-notrare's answer is correct but the entry is invalid and against the rules, since it contains no link to a new topic.
So unfortunately the part of the contest which involves identifying the country the 42 stamps are from is over now. There is no winner.

However the Grand Prize part of the contest will continue until March 1st!
Please keep posting your entries, one per day with a link to your new topic.
We already have some good topics started, let's keep going and tally the results on Saturday March 1.

I will give some more details about the Grand Prize very soon.
The set of 42 Swedish stamps are added to the Grand Prize.

I remembered the stamp and I remembered it was from somewhere cold but without researching, I just guessed. Close but no winner!

Congratulations nonrares! You are the expert today!

Pondering this service.

Let me know what you think about personalized stamps and if you would recommend them.
