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

  • 2010 Native American Arrowhead issue

    This set of 2 perfectly shaped lines of raised metal, in line in the tip of the 3rd arrowhead...matches the other "string" lines tying arrowheads to shaft to a t!....anyone seen this yet? FRrom the newly released 2010 Native American 1$.

    Just an off the wall thought; could it be machine doubling? Since that is a high spot on the die (the normal strings on the arrowheads) a bounce could have sent that particular area into the arrow head affected. Other than that, my next guess would be "struck through a foreign object".

      2010 Native American

      I do not see a speck of any MDD here, or on any other of these yet...I'm leaning towards ejection strike for now...someone will need to see it in hand..it's so reflective to shoot, cannot get a good shot. I am also VERY interested in another coin I found today with extra M's & N's & 6 partial stars on side...impossible for me to shoot....there are 2 out of place partial stars here, between P of PLURIBUS, and, 10, of 2010..who is best for modern coin attribution for these, Dr. Wiles?
      Thanks....

        These sound like errors and in this case it would be Mike Diamond who would do that attribution.

          Just looked at your photos and I'll give you an idea how to photograph the coin and the rim together. Use the reflector from a flashlight with the coin inside that reflector to get pictures like this.

            The lines on the arrowhead are most likely contact marks from another coin. Ditto for the extra elements on the edge, since they appear to be raised.
