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

    !776-1976D Bi Cennn quarter- Is this an error or a "dryer" case etc.

    Only on the Rev as the Obv seems to be normal wear.

    I cannot think of an way this could happen in the minting process, so I vote damage by hooligan. I would of course wait for Mike's word though...

      Thanks Jason!


      Not sure either if this could be a weak strike or been in a dryer etc.

        A weak strike impacts the whole coin and the force placed upon the collar as well - that is not seen here - only the reverse has been impacted. I cannot figure out how a filled die would look like this, so I stick with PSD until someone with more knowledge says different.

          The affected areas on the reverse were ground off or otherwise mechanically removed outside the Mint.
