We present the discovery of two new quasars, that initially appeared as candidate cataclysmic variables (CVs) in a list of the Calán-Tololo objective prism survey. However, additional spectroscopic and photometric observations revealed their true nature. Furthermore we present data for a third quasar, CTCV J0322-4653, which has also been found in our study, but which has already been included in the list of Maza et al. (1996) as CTS 0639. Here we present the spectra for the first time.

Key words: galaxies: active – galaxies: quasars: emission lines – galaxies: quasars: general – galaxies: quasars: individual: CTS 0639

* Based on observations collected at the European Southern Observatory, La Silla, Chile
