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

  • !960 D penny

    Found this penny today,was adding some to penny books,it was in the same jar as the nickle (my collection as a kid). I was shocked to see it. What is it an error or mis-minted?

    It is a clogged die that struck this coin. The more famous clooged die is the 1922-D, die pair# 1 and 3, with weak D or no D.

    What has happened is that the recessed area in that part of the die has filled with gunk and will not letmetal flow into that particular recess. Thus the missing letters in LIBERTY.

        It has minimal value, mostly as a curiosity. On E-bay it would sell in the general area of one to two dollars.
