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

  • 1926 Buffalo Nickel Slightly rotated die.

    Well you can see that this is a slightly rotated die.Not by much but enough notice.I dont know how many degrees.I'd guess 10.

    Also I have a question,What would warrent a coin to weigh more than a normal coin? I understand if it thicker but I dont see it here.It felt heavier to me in hand so I placed it on the scale and its like 3 grams heavier.this just has me puzzled.

    The first coin on the scale is the rotated heavy one.
    The second one is the weight of a normal buffal nickel
    The third one is the weight of a 2010 nickel.

    Thanks for the help!!

    Five grams is normal. The others are a bit underweight. But nickels do vary in weight. None of these weigh even close to 8 grams.
