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

  • 1969-D Lincoln Pennies

    Here are two 1969-D Lincoln pennies. Interestingly, both have a floating roof and the fisrt one has no "FG" initials.

    The question is.....where does the floating roof and the no "FG" initials intersect as far as where did the roof loose the verticle lines and where did the "FG" initials get removed or lost? Usually, I would guess the roof verticle lines were polished off the reverse, but were the "FG" initials left off or were they polished off the reverse?

    Then we have other 1969-D Lincoln Pennies with no "FG" initials but DO have complete roof lines.

    Very interesting.

    Since the master die for all the 1969 Lincoln cents had the designer's initials present on that device (master die), then all working dies had the same designer initials present.

    In both cases, the missing design elements were abraded off. It may have been a case where the die's life was trying to be extended or that the abrasion was a an action of trying to remove a mark on the die.

      1969 s-p&d mints what are we all missing ?

      Hi I see that you to have noticed some strange things with this year. Have we all over looked things because the 1969 DDO is so rare and valuable ? I have attached a few photos one is of the 1969 p-mint one of the 1969 d-mint & one of a normal s-mint. Then 2 of what I see as a strange 1969-s mint. I will look closer at what you have seen and see if it ties in to this I am pondering. Will you look at what I have seen and ponder it ?
      The 1969 s-mint date has very long flowing tapered to a point numbers. Draw a line vertically from the tail of the 6 down through the loop and do this on any of the four numbers and see that a normal 1969 s-mint is higher and bends out further than the p & d mints which are very short and blunted on the tips. I came across a 1969-s mint that had what appears to be a p or d style date over the s mint style date.
