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

  • 1946-S Lincoln Cent RPM

    I have an RPM which may be listed on CONECA but it simply does not match. There are three that are close in location, one has the correct type font on the mint mark, the other two appear different. With quite a few of the 1946-S year, the ones which come close to a match are:

    followed by:

    http://varietyvista.com/02a%20LC%20R...946SRPM033.htm MM on this coin looks a little farther east.

    I think it looks closer to RPM 42 than any other. The MM position for 42 seems off. This MM seems a little too low?

    Here is the best candidate of the three I have found so far.

    Any assistance/confirmation greatly appreciated.

    Although a bit dark, this photo shows the definition of the separation of the upper serif and the upper curve as well.

    Two scratches, south of the "9's" curl are on all three specimens

    Faint scratches are at the top of TY in LIBERTY.

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

    I can't seem to match it either. RPM-033 and 042 seem to be the closest match by position. It is very possible that you have an unlisted RPM.

      Thank you for the reply...


      Its now two or three that I have that very well may be new.

      I will eventually get them slabbed by ANACS, and maybe as discovery/new listing pieces, if CONECA is willing to note it on the letter.
      I have multiple of each coin. For the new listing, is it best to send in one per coin, or all of them?

      For the 1946-S I have three coins total and for the 1961-D I think I have maybe six or seven.

        As far as getting CONECA attributions, when the cents are opened up for attributions, you can discuss with the attributor how many you can send in at one time.
