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

    It is an occupational WWII Belgium 1 franc coin, showing arms of Brabant and the state title on the obverse and the royal monogram on the reverse. I believe they were made of zinc.

        The monetary system in Belgium was Franc in 1942 it is now Euro. Your coin is a 1 Franc KM 127. The monetary system for cents, nickels & quarters is the dollar. So, the answer is something else “1 Franc”.

          The website https://numista.com is a great resource for foreign coins. When you land on the webpage, choose the coin link. From there, pick your country. Once you are in the country area, the search query is pretty helpful. I can find most things there by a search, minus gram weight.

          I use this site a lot to do attribution on potential struck on wrong (foreign) planchet errors.
