Venezuela 1859/1915 - Early and rare stamps

Venezuela 1859/1915 - Early and rare stamps

Six pages from old Schwanenberger's stamp album about Venezuela.
We scanned all the stamps on these pages and added descriptive images.

We guess there are two reprint stamps in the collection:
Effigy of Simón Bolívar, Mi:VE 24x, Sn:VE 69, Yt:VE 25, Sg:VE 103 Swedish collector inscribed nytryck -reprint- on the top of the stamp)
and
Independence Heroes, Mi:VE 88I, Sn:VE 251, Yt:VE 126, Sg:VE 341

There is very interesting error on the one stamp:
1900, Simón Bolívar (overprinted) Mi:VE ST76, Yt:VE FP80, Sg:VE 210 (Overprint is 1901 instead 1900)
Swedish collector wrote feltryck (misprinted) on the underside of the stamp.

We scanned the three stamps inside the transparent envelope attached to the fourth page by placing them on the page. (1902/1903)
