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

    Someone soaked this coin in cold, slushy rubbing alcohol to "restore" it. Just damage, sorry.

          It has been common in the past to leave a buffalo nickel in a corrosive to try and teak out the date on a worn coin.

                Does it have any Date or mint mark on it. I can’t tell from these pictures.

                  No, it was soaked in something, they tried to see if it would raise the date up, but it was soaked for tooo long.
