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

  • Roosevelt Dime with issues

    I had an older gentleman bring a Roosevelt dime to the CONECA table this past weekend. It looks like there is an additional strike on top of Roosevelt's head. I was swamped Friday with questions at the CONECA table and I hastily shot the obverse and reverse of this coin:

    I had to lift the dime and shoot the obverse to get a decent pic. The reverse was laying flat on the light table.

    I sent the owner of the coin a message and a copy of these photos as well.

    Here is a what the owner says about the coin:


    Hi Gary,

    Thanks for all your help when I stopped by the CONECA table this weekend.. Its been about 43 years since I found this coin in change and have always wondered

    why ​and how this dime is different then most other dimes. I hope an answer can be found.
