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

  • 1997-D misaligned Die question..

    I have noticed lots of off center strikes for the 97..
    but this one seems to be a little different than the normal everyday ones.
    I checked it out ebay but couldn't find anything that looks identical to it.
    I'm sure it's not rare or something super special. Just a neat flip coin find..

    My question are:
    #1) looks like the mint mark had been duplicated bc the off center strike. So does that make it semi special?

    #2) Is this coin considered a double collar or just misaligned die/off center %2 ish?

    #1. No
    #2. Double collar? Not sure where that reference came from. Do you know what a collar is and what its used for? Off centered and misaligned strike are 2 different things. Nobody will ever be able to know what this coin is by seeing one side of it.
