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

    I'm not seeing any doubling. Perhaps a misaligned die, but that's all I'm seeing.

      Hard to tell from the pictures. 69 is notorious for MD. Maybe better closer pics?

        I agree with the others that it is difficult to pick out anything with your photos. I also encourage you to try and orient your photos in the proper direction.

          Your time & feedback is much appreciated! I will try to get better photos and fix the orientation. I have 2 additional (3 total) 1969-s Lincoln cents that I would like to have looked at. Is it best to create separate forum post for each coin or link them to this post? Thanks again!

            Post says 1965, the photo shows a 1969. I am going to address the 1969-S coin photos...

            I as well cannot tell from the photos. But if it was the bell-ringer 1969-S DDO, you WOULD know it without hesitation. The others I believe, have the "DDO" centered around the date.

            It can be a pain to get a good photo. A cell phone camera can produce a good photo but it cannot be too close. If using a hand held camera, there is usually a "macro" feature which allows you to get real close to an item and it will keep things in focus. Lighting and Focus are the two pains when attempting to get a good photo.


            There are two 69-s DDO's CONECA recognizes as far as I know. Coppercoins shows three.


            Let me offer a few links so you can see if the photos on the website(s) match up with what you have in hand:

            Variety Vista:

            http://coppercoins.com/lincoln/diest...&die_state=mds

            http://coppercoins.com/lincoln/diest...&die_state=mds

            If Coppercoins shows additional photos showing markers, they may or may not be present on your coin. It depends if you have the same "die stage" and it was relatively close in production to the coin that was attributed.

            The 19060's and 1970's were notorious for mechanical doubling. There are even examples of the 1969-S big dollar DDO showing as a DDO with machine/mechanical doubling. BUT. the give away is typically IN GOD WE TRUST. The doubling is usually insane.

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

              MintErrors Thanks a ton!
              Your insight and informative links have already been a HUGE help and a time saver! I haven’t had a chance to take updated photos yet… however, when I do, I‘m definitely going to dust off my old Canon and give the macro setting a try! Thanks again!
              Best,
