Unregistered Variety?

3 posts in this topic

I have a coin:
1929 Venezuela 5B High 9
MS 61 SN: 2803426-002

The assigned variety in incorrect. NGC recognizes “HIGH 9” and “LOW 9”
but this coin is neither variety but was incorrectly assigned “HIGH 9”

My question is: Since you do not recognize this third variety, can you offer a solution other than not assigning a variety to the coin? For example “Unregistered Variety” or “Unkown Variety” could be stated in the slab.

Best regards ,

  • Most Cherrypicker varieties by FS numbers
  • Half cents by Cohen numbers
  • Large cents by Sheldon (1793-1814) and Newcomb (1816-57) numbers
  • Half dimes (1794-1837) by Logan-McCloskey numbers
  • Dimes by John Reich (1796-1837) and Forton (1837-1891; Top-100 only) numbers.

If you feel that your coin does not fit under the variety it was given, you may send it in to be regraded. Please note that if it is not a variety we recognize, then there would be no variety listed on the label. We do not currently attribute "Unknown Variety", we only attribute varieties from the lists above or leave the variety designation blank.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions. Thank you!
