Currency today : Venezuela 02

In my first post, I introduced the banknotes currently in use in Venezuela.
There are 6 notes in circulation, from 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 Bolívares fortes (strong bolivar).
With the first set in 2007, also a 200-note would be introduced. So far the highest denomination is still the 100 Bolívares note.
announced, not issued
announced, not issued note of 200 VEF
After the elections in 2015, a new note of 500 and 1000 is announced, but was not in use yet in January 2016.
Because of the urgent need of higher note values, I guess before June 2016, a 500 and or 1000 Bolóvares note will be released.

From the notes in circulation, there are 10 printing dates know.
Which gives a possible range of 60 different notes.
However some issues are not know (probably not even issued).
In yellow are the known issues of the banknotes of each value.
In green the ones I have in my collection, with some of the seen serial numbers.
I guess, the yellow coloured fields will represent the missing numbers, starting with A in 2007.

In the right column, I refer to signature combinations as they apprear on the notes.
A visual of those signatures can be found in my previous post on Venezolan currency, and will be discussed in later posts.

Finally the white fields refer to years where no note was printed, or at least where no information was available at this moment.

Anyone with more information about this matter can always leave a message, it will be greatly appreciated.
