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

      Have you seen this one before? I couldn't find any info on the variety. I read up a little on Lazaretto coinage but could find no info on the variety other than the ebay auction I bought it from.

        You know, I kind of looks like two different sized Zs were used. The bottom crossbars are practically at the same level, but the tops are way different. Cool coin.

          I'm thinking your correct. It looks like the same size/font as the letters around the rim. Wonder if somebody grabbed the wrong punch?

            It is definitely a larger Z. I didn't think about it being the same size as the letters around the rim. The wrong punch would make sense.

              What appears to be a difference in font may be due to the Z to the North being punched in weaker. A higher grade coin might reveal more.
              It's a neat variety no matter what.
