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

    It looks to be a possible "struck through a foreign object".

      Yeah if it's incuse, it looks a lot like a strike through of a piece of wire (from a brush? who knows) that fell out after striking. Neat find!

        Would it have any value. Or is this a common error...

          This is a fairly common error. The value is dependent on how large the object was that the coin was struck through and if the object that was struck through was retained in the coin itself.

          In this case, the struck through object was minor and was not retained in the coin. However, it is still considered an error coin so it will command a small premium.
