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

    so I can imagine, they look forward to making some revenue of attribution fees to help administratively,
    There is no administrative revenue made on attributions. The fees charged are paid directly to the attributer by the customer for his time/effort in looking at your coin(s). This trivial amount includes a lot including photographing and assigning a number and adding it to the files. Some times, (especially on coins like this one) that could take hours. Whatever he charges also includes return postage, supplies etc.
    You can tell that this is all done for the love of and to help expand the hobby. I don't know a lot of folks who would do anything for 4 or 5 bucks an hour.

        The person who would do your attribution is currently away on vacation. I will PM you the name and address so you can contact him in a couple of weeks.

            I took my photo's in ""Auto"" that is why they look more grey. Sometimes easier to see markers..

            Bob - Wexler is, from what I understand, over 100+

            I looked at the 60+ I have. One close possibility is: W014 / IMM-049. Looks close in position but I'm not sure about the looks of the serif(s).
            This coin would need to be overlaid to verify.

            The second coin I have - I took photo's of mine is not listed by Wexler. It's in my un identified roll.
            See if mine matches any of your markers. Notice the die scratches are different. Mine is an Early after the clash coin. If your clash is weaker the die may have been abraded to wipe out the clash. This is why marker photo's don't always help. Clash dies changes most marker's. You need to focus only on Mintmark Position.

            This is also why an attributer would need a copy of the coin. So they can overlay the coin and look for very minor markers.. 1958-D-Un-Listed(01).jpg 1958-D-Un-Listed(02).jpg 1958-D-Un-Listed(04).jpg 1958-D-Un-Listed(03).jpg

              Oh one other thing. This shows you there are at least 3 dies with very close position of the primary mintmark. Another reason the attributer would need a copy of the coin.
