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

  • Lincoln cent weighing in at 13.4 G ???!

    I was in Raleigh Coin Club show a little while back and William brought me a Lincoln Wheat Cent to look over. He handed me the coin, and it was overly obvious in hand that this was way overweight for a Lincoln Wheat Cent. I had to shoot the coin and go to the other tables as people were waiting to make purchases, so this one was shot it some haste. First thing I did was weigh the coin. It read 13.4 grams. I was like, what the...... I removed the coin from the scale, shut the scale off, turned it back on. Put the coin back on the scale and it still registered 13.4 grams. It looks like a Lincoln Wheat Cent and possibly another strike on it as well.

    I told William I would look into this, and not a better place to do so. I did say to him - what's this thing made of - Lead?
