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

  • 1965 Canadian penny

    I read where there was a fifth design of the 1965 canadian coin having extra bud in centre of branch..However, there were actually 5 varieties in 1965 and the 5th variety is extremely RARE!
    • Variety # 5: This is the same as variety # 2 but with extra spine on branch. This is very rare with only a few reported.

    This is the normal bud variety.

    This is the Extra Bud Variety.

    This is an extreme enlargement of the Extra Bud Variety.
