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

  • Struck Through with something weird going on

    This past weekend I bought a 1960-D small date bag which was in storage since 1964. I've been going through the bag, and one coin is sort of stumping me. I believe it is a struck through, but what gets me is, within the "crater" I see two impressions of the end of the memorial building, clearly and quite separated. I am thinking this coin may have been flipped after the strike with another already struck Lincoln cent on top of it, so they were reverse/reverse, a bit off-center and were struck again.

    I dunno. I've had quite a few strike through's over the years and this one is perplexing.

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

    What you have is a cent struck through a thin, struck fragment of metal. A foil-like piece of metal (possibly a flake that spalled off another planchet) entered the striking chamber and was struck on top of a planchet. It shifted position slightly before being struck on top of a second planchet. It was then struck into a third planchet (your coin), leaving two sets of normally-oriented incuse design elements. I have seen many similar errors over the years.
