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

If you do not indicate what number system you want on an encapsulation, it will come back with the generic code of DDO, DDR, RPM, RPD, etc.

    That is where an expert in attributions comes into play; they are the ones who can tell you what that number should be.

    While PCGS and NGC are more likely to send a variety back with a generic label or no indication of a variety on the label, ICG and ANACS if asked, will put a designating (from the above list) number on the encapsulation, IF THEY AGREE IT IS CORRECT.

So, that would effectively leave the shield and large 5 digit out since they were engraved into the galvano that was used for this series of nickel.

    I did run across this topic over in Coppercoins;

    http://www.coppercoins.com/forum/vie...9b1185d94d4556

    So, with all said it is best to leave it at not being a doubled die, but with some form of unknown doubling.

    Me to Wavy!!!
    I just hope it come with Die # on the details. About 2 year ago I sent 1964 Lmc cent Anacs,and it came back with Detail just DDO but no die # but I think this one is going to Ngv or Pcgs.

    If you are having it encapsulated, you may get several different answers to what the doubling is by who you submit the coin to. It will be interesting to see what the call is.

    It's unlikely to be Longacre doubling. Longacre doubling has never been known to affect central devices like the shield. I'm not sure what kind of doubling this is. I'm confident it's not a doubled die, though.

    I am an extreme rookie at this so take this with a grain of salt. That being said, it looks like strike doubling (MD) to me. The doubling is on all sides. That is a dead give away, right BJ?
