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

  • 1963 Franklin over a 2 ?

    I picked this up a while back and was just looking at what appears to be a 3 over a 2. What do others think?

    I see nothing of interest here.

      There are no repunched digits or dates possible after about 1909. The ones that are known such as the 1942/1941 Winged Liberty head dimes are doubled dies where one design is hubbed over another one.

      So something like a 3 over a 2 on a Franklin could not happen unless the entire obverse had two different hubs involved in the ultimate creation of the die that struck the coin.

        Thank you

        Thank you both for taking a look and the information is appreciated. I'll most likely send it off to Wiles for closer examination.
