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

    We can't have it where there are 10 different coins in one post. One per thread please. You also need to be specific about what you are seeing, and where. The CONECA home page tells you who examines what. They can look at your pics and let you know if it should have any further action taken. I am moving this post to the Error forum

        We can discuss the 2006. What is it you are seeing? Beyond that, it is one coin per thread and the others can be posted separately.

          I came across this one...1971-D nickel...got doubling inside of arches and on right column (green). ... I am not sure if (blue) is a gauge or die brake occurred and caused error ... and definitely is more “intriguing error” then obvious 2006 DD...I got and I came across of all kinds of errors, known and unknown but never submitted any...this one is pretty cool, I might submit this one...

            Some of what you're seeing looks like it is probably die wear (common on nickels and clad coinage) either a die gouge or a hit to the coin and everything else looks normal.
