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

    This one also made the rounds elsewhere where it went down as a lamination. I still can't envision that. It's that straight cut between the raised polished area and the lower unpolished area that makes me still say struck-through. However, if so, I have a problem, there, too, as, shouldn't that rim also be affected, were it a struck-through? Unless I'm mistaken about that, that means I'm back to a lamination (a planchet defect). What do you think? Thanks.

    Looks like a lamination error to me.

      Hmmm. I have to ask, then, Mike, is that simply how the planchet looked on that one side before it was struck? I do notice that distinct separation-line is parallel to the graining on that side of the coin, should that further support a lamination.

        It split off after the strike.

          This one still really had me puzzled. But I've seen enough lamination "peels," just barely hanging on, to understand what you're saying. This one was just so weak, the whole area just got lifted right off. Thanks, again!
