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

  • Interesting 1878s morgan with square s

    I was looking through some Morgan Dollars when I came across this 1878 s . I noticed that the s was distorted with definite lines on both sides. It looks like someone may have altered the mint mark to make it look like an s. But why would someone alter such a cheap coin? So I figured that I would submit the coin to see what your opinion is.

    I would need to see it under a microscope to draw a conclusion. It could be a repunched mintmark or a chipped letter punch. Not really sure.
