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

    blank planchet question

    Hello all,
    Does anyone know if a reeded edge is unusual on a blank planchet and is there any addition value?

    I won the planchet via EBAY from a person that purchased a small hoard from someone that worked for brinks.

    Thanks for your help… Vince

      It's impossible for an unstruck planchet to have a reeded edge. That's because the reeding is imparted by the strike. No strike, no reeding. This would be false reeding of some kind. The irregular spacing is consistent with this interpretation.
