Congratulations ;)

With "iptables -L" iptables list only the filtering Option to list your 
masquerading Rules type "iptables -t nat -L". Now you can see your 
Masquerading Rules 

without the -t option iptables think you want to do some filtering options 
(input,output,forward) for all masquerading thinks you call iptables with 
the -t nat Option
