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

  • Dropped Words and Letters. Rare Quarter

    I have a 1998 p quarter. Completly missing the word IN-IGWT...The letter G- GOD. The letters T and R in Trust. No scrapes, smears or damage. .It appears like they were never there, accept G in IGWT. It is visible under microscope but its faint.

    What you're describing is not a dropped letter (that's something different) rather, your most likely describing a struck thru error where something like grease clogged the parts of the die - thus those areas were not struck properly and do not show the usual design elements.

        A coin that was struck thru grease, is a mint error. Its level of collectibility and whether it is worth a premium would largely depend on how dramatic it is, coupled with date and denomination.
