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

  • 1964 Nickel struck thru own lamination?

    It appears this 1964 Nickel was struck through its own lamination fragment. It looks like the lamination fragment came from the obverse side of the planchet, and fell between the reverse die and subject planchet when struck. Anyone else have any input? Thanks,

    I'm about 100% sure that what you are saying is true . If it is a coin that is struck thru it's own lamination fragment the fragment must have come loose from the planchet soon as it entered the coining chamber and got struck into the other side. I was thinking it may also be struck thru a loose die chip that came loose from the die but I don't see a cud. These two areas looks about identical so I believe what you said is true. Im my opinion you have found another great coin. Troy

      I think the obverse is the struck through. Don't see any indication of a cud tho.
