CONECA (pronounced: CŌ´NECA) is a national numismatic organization devoted to the education of error and variety coin collectors. CONECA focuses on many error and variety specialties, including doubled dies, Repunched mintmarks, multiple errors, clips, double strikes, off-metals and off-centers—just to name a few. In addition to its website, CONECA publishes an educational journal, The Errorscope, which is printed and mailed to members bimonthly. CONECA offers a lending library, examination, listing and attribution services; it holds annual meetings at major conventions (referred to as Errorama) around the country.

CONECA was formed through a merger of CONE and NECA in early 1983. To learn more about the fascinating HISTORY OF THE ERROR HOBBY and THE HISTORY OF CONECA, we encourage you to visit us our main site Here

  • 1994 1 cent Canada. Strikethrough?

    Texture makes it look frosty, maybe grease did it other strange depressions on obverse.

    tough to say from the pics but my first guess would be some type of corrosive.

      That's an unusual surface for a coin not to have some sort of damage. Seems like extensive surface pitting with weak/mushy details. Doesn't appear to be a mint error.

        i was perusing a canadian coin site that has a lot of sections the other night and i saw some legit coins that had an effect called "rippling" and the surfaces looks just like it sounds. the metal is quite rippled like the waves water.

        while your coins is obviously not one of those, since candian coins do have plenty of examples of quirky surface effects, i will say that your coin has a small chance of perhaps being an error along those lines.

        i still feel the most likely explanation is a type of corrosive but i will not say i am 100% certain after having viewed some more candian error coins.
