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 proof roosevelt DDR

    I am still digging through the proof sets and I had to do a double take (no pun intended) on this 1963 Proof Dime. The only thing that caught my eye originally was the funky way the E in EPU looked.

    I see some sort of doubling on the EPL of Epluribus

    I also see some sort of notching on UNITED STATES. The most predominant seems to be in the area of the EPL and D in UNITED.

    EDIT: A second look under the scope and the entire UNITED STATES OF AMERICA has the notched doubling. The notching is much more evident on UNITED STATES.
    There is some Notching if you will, on ONE DIME as well.

    The Obverse looks clean, no obvious issues on the date or IGWT.

    I've yet to set the lighting up in the home office, so bear with my photos for a few more days.

    Here come the photos.

    Looking over the master listing, it looks like it boils down to this one;

    1963 DDR-005
    Designation: PR-5-R-II-C

    Description: Medium spread on ONE DIME, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLU of PLURIBUS, and Left stem
    Population: 3

    The stem isn't split much, if at all. There is more of a chance of doubling on some of the leaves on the far left hand side of the design.

      Without a doubt a doubled die.
