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

  • 1961 FRANKLIN HALF DDO-009 or WDDO-005?

    I am looking at and very colorful 1961 Proof Franklin half. The coin is in a PCGS Holder #41370014 with TrueView Imaging available on PCGS.COM. The subject coin looks extremely similar to the pics on VV for DDO-009 and the pics on DD for WDDO-005. The shape of the '6' in the date is unique as well as the 'S' & 'T' in 'T R U S T'. No die markers are listed for either listing. Thoughts or comments?

    Checked out the true view, and I have to say, very nice toner! I have noticed that a lot of your posts are nice toners.

      Hello CoinHunter, Thanks. Colored toned coins are a passion for me. I have 6 showcases in the 2021 U. S. Toned Coin Competition on PCGS for public view which highlight some spectacular toned coins...check them out. Same user name rbroederer. https://www.pcgs.com/setregistry/col...re-auction/826. Cheers, Bruce.

          Hello CoinHunter, Thanks! IMO high definition imaging like PCGS's TrueView® and to a much lesser degree NGC's Photo Vision® (probably just as good but no one can access it.) is the most important improvement to the hobby since TPG in the 80's. I certainly enjoy my coins but now I can share the experience and it was as simple as giving you a link! Hopefully this will become a catalyst to generate more buzz and attract new and younger people to the hobby. Thanks again for the interest. Cheers, Bruce.
