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

  • Coarse Lettering Monroe $1

    Referring to a recent story posted on the CONECA main page, I'd be interested to know if the many examples of this "Coarse" lettering that were found by Mr. Barnes exhibit the exact same look to the doubling. The way I see it...

    1) if many are found that look exactly alike -- the doubling might actually be in the raised lettering on the device that creates the lettered edge.

    2) If the examples are all a little different, then the cause might simply be the same as other double edge lettering dollars - except having only a very light spread (i.e. two times through the lettered edge machine without any significant rotation of the orientation of the letters).

    If #1 is true, then this error might be a closer 'kin' to a doubled die or die deterioration doubling then it is to double edge lettering.
