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

  • 1820 LD Coronet Large Cent - Newcomb #13 & Advise

    I just purchased an 1820 Large Date, Coronet Large Cent from my brother-in-law for $100. He, somehow, purchased this at an auction for $7.50. I did some research and have determined it is die variety Newcomb #13, because it has the die crack that encircles the obverse. I don't know anything about large cents. Also, the L & Y in LIBERTY appear to be doubled. My questions are:

    1) What do you think it would grade?
    2) Should I send it to a TPG to get it slabbed?
    3) Which TPG do you guys recommend?
    4) Did I do ok spending $100?
    5) Are there any known doubled dies for this coin, I can't find anything.

    Thanks folks, I need all the help I can get on something this old! Any other advise would be greatly appreciated.

    You made a good investment. The coin will be XF for sure and most likely AU. Hope this helps cant help with the other questions.

      I am not an expert on large cents. However, your images do appear that you have a coin that is in the Extra Fine category.

      So, yes I would have it encapsulated since its value is over $100.00.

      I would recommend PCGS.

      The doubling that you see is more than likely from a repunched letter and not form hub doubling.
