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

  • 1796 NC-2 Large Cent

    This is either the 10th or 11th known with one permanently in ANS and one listed as the Bird specimen in Noyes which is showing photos of the Denman NC-3. SO that is either an attribution error or a wrong photo. Hence the uncertainty of the census.

    Note This is the last use of Obverse DIe 8, previously used on S-92, S-93, NC-3, S-96, S-95 and S-93. It is the only use of Reverse Die M. My R7 rarity is based on the assumption that this is the 10th known specimen with only 9 of them available to collectors. A tenth specimen available to collectors would make it R7-.

      a lot of large cent attributers go a LONG time, maybe never before finding an NC.

        I have quite a collection of them now.

        1793 NC-3 R8- 3rd KNOWN - While I didn't acquire this one, I identified it from Heritage Auctions Archives and Mark Borckhardt wrote a nice article in Penny-Wise (April 2019.) It's provenance dates back before the discovery coin. It had previously always sold as S-16.

        1796 NC-2 R7- 11th KNOWN - One in ANS. The Bird specimen exists and the Noyes Photo is simply a wrong photo. At PCGS for authentication, grading, true-view photography and attribution confirmation.

          a lovely ensemble!


          having looked for them on and off over the years (amongst MANY other rarities in other series), i can attest to the dedication, focus, organization and enduring strength and more it takes to pull those from the woodwork!

            This is a link with part of the story in the description area. I guess you can tell it was the highlight of my attribution career though the 1796 NC-2 may overtake it due to possession.
