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

  • - - WE TRUST Lincoln

    Is it considered a mint error if the words IN GOD are missing from a AU 1996-D Lincoln? The area of the normal cent is clean and smooth as a baby's butt with no signs of having been removed once it left the mint. The area is bright and shiney and flawless with the exception of the missing words. The words WE TRUST are also flawless. If not a mint error then what?? Is there any interest in the hobby for what I believe to have been a clogged die? Would PCGS have a classsification for this? thanks

    More than likely it is a gunk filled die, or in this case, gunk filled "IN GOD" that cause those letters to be missing. As far as extra value, or collector interest, I am sure there is some, but to what degree I do not know.

    I am not sure if PCGS would encapsulate this coin with that nomenclature, however, there are alternatives, such as ANACS, that will.
