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

    Check if "TRUST" matches https://www.coppercoins.com/lincoln/...&die_state=mds. If it does then I would contact them to add the images of the eyelid. If it doesn't match, then you have a strong candidate for a new DDO variety. IMHO.

      I agree. Definitely worth listing if it isn't already.

          Don't know why Chuck would ever say that. I worked with him on coppercoins for 15 years and he never made that sort of demand. I would ask Chuck for verification on that statement. It just doesn't sound like anything he would ever say.

            yeah he seemed pretty rude..
            And his demeanor was not very professional..
            Just saying , I'm not one to bother if I do not have too...
            But telling me to send it in, and to save shipping he'll keep them is just ridiculous

              I can't speak for him in this case, but when I was attributing for him, if someone found a bunch of the same die, we sometimes made a deal to attribute the die free of charge if they were willing to send one that we could keep for the master files. Based on that, what he is recommending is not something new. Of course...the coin(s) is yours and you are the customer. If you have to pay attribution fees and postage, would it be worth it to donate one for his master file in lieu of the fees?
              I have to say that unequivocally, If you feel uneasy with his offer or demeanor, by no means should you agree to his offer.

                I would have to agree, only send a coin for attribution if you feel the transaction would be to your liking. I am always uneasy about sending my coins off, even to a TPG.

                  You have to realize that even if the coin gets a new listing, it's not going to be worth very much, maybe $5-10. Plus, once a new variety is listed people are on the outlook for it and suddenly they come out of the woodwork driving the value down further. His offer is a good one, you don't pay the attribution fee which people charge in the $5-10 range. To cover themselves it will be mailed back, tracked and insured, another $4-6. Texting is a shortcut way of communicating, you only type the essential points to save your thumbs. It's not like you sent a formal letter and he responded in kind. I don't see where he is forcing you to give him a coin, he is saying that it could be the most economically sensible thing to do. You replied with how you wanted to do it. Did he tell you to go pound rocks if he didn't get a ransom coin? That would be rude.
