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

      Saddened, I still made a mistake about mint forum instead of variety.How do I may changed?Wants to say the number in front of the ears?:

        The mark in/near the ear, if it is raised up from the field and not recessed into the field is probably just a die scratch/gouge that looks like a number. The closest I can think of is that it looks sort of like part of a 4, but would be the totally wrong size for the numbers in the date on the penny in those years.
