| /This issue was overprinted to avoid speculation, when it was discovered that the Italian printer was selling additional copies on the side. Fresh appearance, Sanabria expertization mark to reverse.
| /Umounted mint block of eight postal fiscal stamps with inverted RESELLADO overprint. ABNC marginal block with imprint to base. Pristine gum.
| /Unlisted in Scott but listed by Gibbons as SG 480a. Four expertisation marks to reverse, including Sanabria and Kessler. Very well centered. Pencil notation. A Venezuelan and Air Post rarity.
| /This issue was overprinted to avoid speculation, when it was discovered that the Italian printer was selling additional copies on the side. Only 5000 stamps overprinted. Fine used.
| /From the fifth Escuelas series. Fine used with no evidence of prior hinging. Ex Moorhouse stock with original listing. An elusive stamp and undercatalogued.
| /Four ABNC die proofs in the issued colors, on India paper mounted to cream stock card, the 90c and 1.95b values further mounted on to stout card with acetate overlay. The odd tone spot.
| /ABNC 50 Bolivares postal fiscal top value in the issued color, sunk on to cream stock card. Light pencil mark to reverse.
| /The key stamp to an advanced Venezuelan collection. The total number of copies of the so-called "Bolivar Negro" extant is not known but it is estimated that no more than two sheets escaped the 1900 overprint. Scott catalogue is $7000. Regummed and mild toning with penciled expertisation signature on reverse. 2005 BPP Dr. Knut Heister certificate.
| /Crisp impression, 50 reales from the third printing with just 1800 printed. Three margins with the fourth just touching. Small repair, just below the right hand side ornament. Regummed. Scarce mint.
| /This stamp is from the third printing in October-November 1872. Only 2400 printed. Overprinted with HLB Co. company stamp (Henry Lord Boulton). Margins just touching.
| /Very unusual ABNC specimen block of eight. The center stamp has been carefully removed and replaced with a glued note by the archivist, stating in manuscript "1 Stamp in Vault with plate". The only example of this practice I've seen.
| /Julius Schlesinger expertise mark on reverse. The forgeries heavily out number the genuine examples of this issue, hence the low catalogue prices. There are at least five fraudulent overprints. Blunt tips to upper perfs.
| /This particular set has a couple of interesting varieties: the 75c shows an over-inking of the plate at the base of the stamp and the 3b value is misperfed. 20,000 sets printed. The 10b high value is MNH. All others are between LM Mint and VLM Mint, a few with small hinge remnants. Note that this set is missing the 15c grey-black value.
| /This is a curious issue, always sold as a 1906 provisional issue but actually unofficially produced in 1915 by a Venezuelan tailor. The 10c value is printed on pink/red paper and signed N. Cardenas (the agent of the San Cristobal post office in 1906) “There are no stamps”. Couple of pinpoint paper disturbances.
