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

  • 1936 Proof Cherry Picked!!

    I bought a can of wheaties at a yard sale a few weeks ago. I payed 20 bucks for a coffee can of pennies that actually had 31 dollars in pennies in it. anyways, I only go through 100 pennies a day. I have found some really good coins so far. 1910 S, 1914 S and 4 1909 vdb's. Still I found this 1936 and something just seemed different. It was in amazing condition compared to the batch. I took it down to a coin shop where I know the owner and he used to work for ANACS back in the 90's for 6 years and he told me the penny is actually a TYPE 2 Satin Proof 1936. I just sent it out to PCGS yesterday. I hope it works out!

    It is easiest to determine a proof from a business strike through and examination of the rims and edges of the coin. From the enclosed photos I just cannot tell - I hope you're correct and nice find!

      Yep I agree, I took this picture with my digiscope and the coin is raised and tilting down so I can show more detail. The rims are squared off like they should be and thanks for the advice I hope it works out too.
