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

  • 1971P JFK Half dollar- Gold Plated/Silver Weighs 11.61 Grams

    I found this 1971P JFK Half roll searching this morning.

    It looks like it was gold plated/silver plated at one time.

    The coin weighs 11.61 grams, approx .27 grams over the normal weight for a 1971 JFK of 11.34 Grams.

    I have a gold plated 2005 JFK and it weights 11.37 grams, just a little over the normal weight of 11.34G

    I know that the US Mint made a few 1974D and 1977D IKE's by mistake in 40% Silver Clad.

    Does anyone know if the Mint made the same kind of error on any 1971P JFK's
    making them in 40% Silver Clad?

    Is it feasable that this coin weighs .27 grams more by being plated?

    Thanks for any help/input on this!

    As you say, it's been plated.
