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

  • 1959-D Lincoln Cent - Struck Thru or a Lamination Issue?


    Here is another 1959-D that I pulled out of the same mint bag. Does it look like a strike thru as well?
    Or is it simply a planchet / or some sort of weird, suction cup lamination issue.

    I look at this pothole below the LIBERTY and again wonder what sort of debris can cause these issues without leaving much behind. The copper in the pit must have disintegrated and fell out over time.

    When I open these bags, I dump the coins in plastic containers. When the coins are gone, I tip the bucket upside down and tap it to see if there is any debris, usually easy to spot on white paper.
    Same with the bag, it is turned inside out, and any debris falls onto white paper.

    No such luck with finding anything that would be a match. If the debris was loose, it high-tailed it on another route and hid in another bag.

    Unsure if it is mechanical/machine/strike doubling or damage? I suggest reading this post below !

    It appears to be a struck-through error. It's impossible to determine the nature and origin of the foreign matter responsible for this indentation.
