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

  • Edge Inscriptions ending soon on Presidential Dollars

    It would appear the entire process of inscribing IGWT and the date along the edge will end, and those elements will be moved to the obverse face once 2008 expires.

    That'll make for an awfully crowded design. Not my problem, though.

      Yeah, for sure, crowded.

      Was thinking how they will eliminate the possibilities for the many different edge varieties/errors that have evolved.

      From the standpoint of an observer, I am disappointed they would simply give up on the process.

        The crowded design elements may give rise to a whole new set of error/variety possibilities.

        PS - I heard from a source? that the presidential dollars used a different type die blank! Has anyone else heard of this switch?

          Yes, undoubtedly there will be some planchets that have been edge lettered that will also be struck with with the new design. I could get interested in that!

          Other than the debate that has been on-going, I haven't heard or read anything about the die blanks, or being able to identify, or tell them apart from Sac dollar blanks/planchets.

          I know for sure I have an authentic Sac Dollar Blank because I got it before the Pres dollars were ever conceived. One instance I can cite where having something in a dated slab proves such.
