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

  • 1967 Ķennedy Half Dollar FS-103 DDO

    I believe I have a 1967 Ķennedy Half Dollar FS-103 DDO. Just looking for some confirmation and if so, would it be something you have attributed or graded?

    Thank you

    There is substantial doubling on FS-103 and I just don't see any on your coin. Am I missing something? As far as having anything attributed or graded, that is a personal choice based on what you want to do with the coin.

      1. I would compare it to the VarietyVista.com listings to see if they match up:

      2. I know CONECA has the ability and the services will be made available soon to attribute - but not necessarily grade the coin. I suggest determining how much this coin is valued at roughly. If this coin is circulated, you'd have to weigh the cost of getting it slabbed from a third party grading service. The catch here is in order to get a lower price, you may have to submit several coins. If you don't have them, the only way is to choose a tier that allows submission for a single coin. Prices vary at ngccoin.com, pcgs.com and anacs.com. If your not a member (paying membership) of pcgs or ngc, there may be local dealers that could submit the coin for you. ANACS does not require you to be a member in order to submit coins.

      Generically, the third party services charge a certain rate to grade and then slab the coin in a protective plastic holder. They DO charge an attribution fee as well, plus a relatively hefty return postage fee.

      So, for example, if you submitted a single coin into ANACS, You could download the form, fill it out and send it in the mail to ANACS. BUT if you are in area when ANACS has a rep at the show, they will assist in filling out the form, explain all options and they would mail the coins to the submission center for free. I THINK a single coin would cost $29.00, plus a verification fee of $9.00 for the attribution. Return postage for 1-4 coins totaling no more than 1,000.00 is $24.00. Postage is high since they have an insurance plan that mandates the rates. Typically - single coin submission prices are higher at PCGS and NGC. Typically a coin can take up to five or more weeks to be returned.

      That's why Bob mentioned it can be up to you to decide whether you want to send it in for attribution. If your planning on keeping the coin and don't really care about the grade, the attribution only services CONECA eventually will provide might be a choice. There are many good reasons to get a coin graded and attributed, but it really depends on the individual.

      Unsure if it is mechanical/machine/strike doubling or damage? I suggest reading this post below !

        Thanks so much Gary that was really helpful!

        And Bob it may not be you who's missing something, I'm still learning, so I'll check out the link Gary provided to compare. I could have been completely wrong

              I deleted my last post, I had attached the wrong photos. I don't think you have the FS-103. The FS-103, CONECA listed 67BS DDO-001, has some strong CW doubling on LIB, and a nice clash under the ear, don't see this in your photo. If you want someone to attribute your half, you need some photos showing where you see the doubling.
