I've got all but three, I'm just lazy, having all this free time makes you not do what you could do. Spent ages trying to find the middle one...... We'll see if I can get anything by tomorrow!

Grmpf. Got only five so far, and tomorrow it's over. (At what time by the way - midnight? And what time zone?  ;D )

Christian

- but you have not sent them in so I make that 0/10 :-[

I now have a seventh set of answers from Augsburger.

Unfortunately I've run out of time to do any more research - I blame it on too many relatives.

Three partial sets of answers - Fosseway, Bitmat and Chrislid.

Still a few hours left....

Who's Bitmat I wonder?!? ;) :D

Strictly speaking, I don't have any clue about the answers. Absolutely no clue! I messaged him two guesses, both half correct (I believe) so I don't even deserve the consolation prize as Andy has promised...

Aditya

PS: In case there are 3+ (or rather 4+) winners, I'd be happy to send a prize for the 4th/5th winner; just like last year. We can have the draw as we had in 2013/2014... :)

Maybe we should have exchanged private notes before. I had some hopefully half correct answers too. Merge the two, and you get one perfect set ... or so. ;D

Results will be announced shortly,

This year (as Chrisild entered) I've asked malj1 to allocate each entrant with 10 correct answers a number - Figleaf will then in parallel allocate a number to each prize - so no-one will know who's won in advance.

Answers -
1. Cook Islands $ 2 1987-94 KM # 38
2. Uganda 5 Shillings 1987 KM # 29 / 10 shillings 1987 KM # 30
3. Rwanda 2 francs 1970 KM # 10
4. Romania 50 baths 1921 KM # 45
5. Egypt 10 millimes 1938-43 KM # 361
6. Netherlands Antilles 50 cents 1989-2000 KM # 36
7. Cook Islands $ 5 1987-94 KM # 39
8. Ireland 50 pence 1970-2000 KM # 24
9. Eastern Caribbean States 2 cents 1981-2000 KM # 11
10. Sudan 50 Hirsch 1987 KM # 103 /50 Hirsch 1988 KM # 105

I don't think I'd have got the remaining eight right. ::) Congratulations to all the winners! :)

Baths? Bani! Errm, what do I get for fixing that? ;D  Thanks for posting the correct answers, Andy. Sigh, I even guessed the "clue" word right, except it would not help me ...

someone sent that set of answers in (and included the catalogue references which I was too lazy to look up)  - and I didn't spot that :)

Auto correct at work no doubt. However if it was me feel free to remove mine from the drawing.
Not a problem and it was great fun!

Tips for previous years (and poor knowledge of the English language) prevented me. I realized that the first letter of the word you can make, but not properly thought that this word CURRENTIES. Therefore №7 sought first among the countries with the letter "T" instead of "C"
