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

        I don't understand your response. Again, what is retained on your coin? All that I see is a small struck through area on the lower bust of Washington...nothing retained.

            Oh...now I see what you are referring to. I wasn't looking closely at things. Your coin is actually damaged outside of the mint. Someone or something made a punch on the lower portion of the bust on the obverse and the corresponding reverse bulged out from the pressure. Your coin isn't a mint error but just damaged.

                    I agree with those who've concluded that this is post-strike damage.
