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

    The size and resolution is inadequate for diagnostic purposes.

          Just make it bigger and sharper, and crop it so only the area of interest is seen. Fading letters can be caused by, 1) a filled die, 2) intentional die abrasion, 3) certain forms of die deterioration, 4) post-strike damage. None of these confer additional value on a coin.

            the size is good. The flash is not that bright. those are two good points.

            If you can get a shot of the word LIBERTY straight down, that would help alot.
            Mike D. means make sure the photo is large enough to see the word LIBERTY, but make sure it is clear, and not fuzzy.
            If you need to use paint or other photo editing software and use the CROP feature. Simply draw a box around the area you want to show, and select CROP.

            If you have any questions, please ask.

                  Since the Y is smaller and thinner than normal, this would be the result of intentional die abrasion.

                      Yes. These efforts are usually undertaken to remove clash marks and other forms of superficial damage from the die face. It's exceedingly common and barely qualifies as an error.

                          Mike D. is pretty knowledgeable when it comes to these things. It boils down to an average circulated cent. The mint may have polished this die up, and by doing so, could have removed some of the details.
                          Like Mike D. said, it does not appear to be worth much, and can be considered a very, very minor issue.
                          I recommend looking at John Wexler's website called www.doubleddie.com . He has some examples of what to look for in respect to errors, and shows "worhless doubling" examples as well.
