  Tabanus: I found his dod in "Aron Nimzowitsch. On the Road to Chess Mastery, 1886-1924" by Per Skjoldager and Jørn Erik Nielsen, p. 393. Probably only one person. Don't know what E stands for.

There are in fact 2 rather contemporary players called "Verner Nielsen", this one distinguished by the "E" is the strongest and best known. He was regarded as somewhat a ladies' man apparently (Skakbladet 1974 nr.8).

The other Verner Nielsen played in Vordingborg. He was also a master, appeared e.g. in the Danish Ch "Eliteklasse C" (one of the 4 groups just below the top group) in 1970 Flensborg. Unfortunately Skakbladet is not digitized from 1960-80 and only offers the top groups of Danish Ch.
