In 2013 and 2014 I had some blockchain.info wallet ... In time I lost emails and identifier, I totally forgot about. Recently I fund the mnemonic, aka seed aka recovery phrase. Wowww I was very happy. But my happy was not for long. The recovery phrases are NOT standard long, like 12 or 24 words, the phrase contain 16, 17 and 19 words + this words are NOT in the BIP39 wordlist.

blockchain info support not answer to my help request. I read on internet, reddit, bitcointalk, etc - that blockchain before 2014 used totally other wordlist (not the standard bip39 wordlist) and script Huh to create this mnemonic (seed)

any help and ideea would be appreciated how can I restore the btc address and private key from this old blockchain info's non standar bip39 wordlist ?

thanks for reading

Unlike traditional banking where clients have only a few account numbers, with Bitcoin people can create an unlimited number of accounts (addresses). This can be used to easily track payments, and it improves anonymity.

Have you accidentally visited and tried this page of blockchain for its legacy wallet recovery https://login.blockchain.com/wallet/forgot-password. I'm sure it would help.

[edit] Seems you have a weird numbers there, can you tell us if what is the numbers of your recovery seed exactly?

Would you answer my edited post above?

Have you tried to double check the spelling of the words as well? You might put some misspelled words.

I doubt that seed that was generated for the blockchain.info's wallet back in the day was the standardized seed. It was more like a random set of words generated that uniquely identified a wallet's private key and not directly associated with it. Support is still your best bet. How many bitcoins are we talking here anyway?

Patatas is right, what you need is their aes.json file as the keys lie there.

If found, import them here: https://login.blockchain.com/wallet/import-wallet
Then the recovery phrase comes into play if you don't know the password. You can use the link on the first post for that, but I see that there was an error??? errr... hmmm I guess let's worry about it after you find the files.

16, 17 or 19 words can't be a SEED unless the excess words are customized extensions like Electrum implemented.
But still, you said that "these words" aren't belong to BIP39 word list (really, all of them?); It's not a SEED then.

There's only one Bitcoin-related wallet generator I know (address & private key pair) that can make use of any word and any number of words: Brainwallet.
It's pretty popular during that time, you might have created a brainwallet and imported the private key/address to blockchain.info before.

Does Brainwallet ring a bell?

any help and ideea would be appreciated how can I restore the btc address and private key from this old blockchain info's non standar bip39 wordlist ?

****forgot to specify the recovery do not work on https://login.blockchain.com/wallet/forgot-password?guid=   ---site response Invalid Checksum
afaik that phrase can be used only to recover forgotten password, and you will still need to remember wallet identifier
but you said it returns "Invalid Checksum", so perhaps you mistyped or lost one of the words?
btw... is this the mnemonic you get when creating the account or the address?
I asked, because my note shows there are 2 different phrases for my old blockchain account,
one for wallet recovery and another for paper wallet I created there

16, 17 or 19 words can't be a SEED unless the excess words are customized extensions like Electrum implemented.
But still, you said that "these words" aren't belong to BIP39 word list (really, all of them?); It's not a SEED then.
it's not a seed phrase, they called it as "Wallet Recovery Mnemonic" to work specifically only on blockchain site
this random length mnemonic exist for wallet created before HD wallet becomes standard wallet on the site
