  6. Hi Ali! I´ve talked to some collectors of Venezuelan coins and they have shown interest in competing in a set made up of the conmemorative coins issued by the Central Bank. I've tried to convince you before with no luck, I hope you might reconsider. Keep safe! The set can be called: Venezuela Central Bank Conmemorative Coins Best regards, Fernando Aguerrevere Reference: https://www.numismatica.com.ve/conmemorativasplata.html

  10. I've bought a lot of Venezuelan coins on Heritage. Once I get old enough (I'm 68 years young) I'll consider Heritage to sell my entire collection instead of leaving that pain in the butt to my kids.
  11. A VISUAL PROOF OF EXISTING VARIETIES FOR FIVE BOLÍVARES 1926 VENEZUELAN COINS. Using Adobe PhotoShop (PS) we will compare 5 bolívares 1926 coins with the objective of proving the existence of several varieties not recognized by the grading companies (NGC; PCGS; ANACS; etc.) We will explain the method used and then will proceed with our conclusions. To compare coins we will first align them and then resize them. For alignment we will use the top horizontal line of the shield. After alignment we will convert all coins to the same size. I will choose 1300 x
  12. You can get a pretty good idea if the images are correct because once you compare them everything matches except the dates (variants).
  13. Hi! I don´t have an answer for the die question. Regarding Photoshop I can assure you that the program creates no distortion when resizing. With regard to the distortion when taking the picture I agree one has to be extremely careful. Up to now I´ve worked with photos obtained from third sources, grading and auction companies. I´ve been stuck in Madrid for 5 months, when I get back home I´ll take photos of my own coins. Regarding the validity of the method, I believe, if you do this with extreme care it is surely better than comparing two coins with a loupe.
  14. When I click on the VarietyPlus link for Venezuela there is only one variety listed: 1872 TACHIRA STAR UNDER DENOMINATION 2R MS. NGC Attribution: TACHIRA STAR UNDER DENOMINATION However there are a lot of varieties listed in the NGC census. Why? Also, I have sent coins for variety designation and they have been returned as "NO VARIETY". There is no way of telling if a coin is not a variety or it has not been designated a variety. As an example, I have the following coins, all Venezuela 5B 1936 The NGC census shows three coins: 1936, 1936 HIGH 3 & 1936 LOW 3. Q
