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

  • 1957-D Broadstrike? with revese thats strange !

    I am back from the Virginia Numismatic Association where I set up as a dealer and the CONECA representative.
    Show was kind of slow, so I concentrated efforts on getting CONECA a few new members. Time will tell.

    I did have a man ask me if I wanted to buy an estate RPM collection. Though most of the big dollar coins are out of the set,
    I had to buy it since it was all organized, detailed and categorized right down to the stage it is. I'd have to take wild guess and say there are over 1,000 RPM's and there are not many dupes.

    I have come across a few bizarre ones, and this is the first one.

      I can only bring up the image of the reverse face. At this point, I can't tell what's going on.

        Looks like dome of the html code is broken and works on only a select number of browsers. Let me repost a few pics from my website.

        Obverse looks flat, something going on with Lincoln's head on the neck line, almost like a lower plateau.


        Reverse :


        I respect all opinions and I agree - so far with Ski's assessment. The only reason I was hesitant to call out lathe lines /circles was due to the fact most of the ones I have read about were in the 1980's and 1990's. This one is significantly older and I personally have not seen many of these around.

          The new photos make it clear that this cent was tampered with outside the Mint.
