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

  • 1995 P Kennedy Half with flat area in eye/nose area

    I am looking for info on this 1995 P Kennedy Half
    There is a continuous flat area in front of the eye, and behind the nose.
    This flat area looks to be the same level as the planchet surface.
    Thanks in advance for any feedback.

    This could be what they call struck through debris or maybe a thin piece of metal . It looks like it may be a tiny bit higher than the field or flat parts of the coin. I can't say for sure but does the coin appear to have this extra metal retained on the coin ?

      A flat area on the face seemingly behind the face sounds like a die abrasion error (over abraded die).
