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

  • Scarce place to find a die chip on a 2006 1c

    I was hoping to find a (BIE) error but I'll take a (LII)..It's kind of rare to find them on a 1996- and beyond cents.This one will go on ebay later on tonite!

    Looks like a plating issue to me. Perhaps a gas bubble that popped. Does not look like a die chip.

      I am leaning more towards a die break. If the image is close to the correct color, the copper plating appears to be split slightly with some of the zinc core showing through. At this point, I would expect the zinc to have turned into oxide and appear more whitish than it is.

        It's definitely a die chip.
