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

  • 1971-S 1c Proof Doubled Die

    Over the past few months, I have been purchasing some rolls of proof cents and proof sets to boost up my die varieties and errors that I take with me to coin shows.

    The best find, value wise has been a 1971-S Lincoln cent DDO that I pulled out of a proof roll. Looking the coin over, it isn't the "big one", so it more than likely will come back as a CONECA 004.

    I pulled these pictures off my web site, so please bear with the web site logos. Once the coin comes back from the third party grading service (TPG) I'll post better pictures, if required/requested.

    I lost the LIBERTY shot somewhere.
    If I find it, I'll post it.

    Nice find guy!

    I do agree that the website logos are a bit glaring. I can replace them when you get the coin back and shoot new images.

    You may want to consider taking images for use here (or elsewhere) before sending coins out for certification. They are always easier to shoot raw than in a slab.

    I hope all is going well with the States Rep Program in your state!

      I may have a second one of these, raw, but it doesn't look like a CONECA 001, 002 or 004. I think its a minor die variety. If I get a chance, and can back to the proof rolls, I will see about getting pics of that one as well, under a separate thread.

      Proofs in general are hard to shoot, for me anyway. The light loves to refract back up the scope and cause issues. No worries, I will eventually get some decent pictures.

      As for the CONECA state rep program, It is a pretty neat thing. I typically set up close to the ANACS rep at shows I attend, and we tag team people with questions about errors or die varieties. I typically set up at 3-4 shows a year, depending on my schedule/free time. I enjoy it - I've been into die varieties and errors since the early 1980's. looking through bags and rolls is like playing the lottery - the chances are better, and cheaper, and odds go up in favor of me if I can "read" the seller and purchase things from sellers/businesses that don't wish to search the merchandise. It works for me !
