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

  • 2020 salt river bay quarter die clash

    So i have around 60 of the salt river bay quarters 30 of which came from new bank rolls but ive noticed at least half of them have a polished looking center the size of washingtons head on the reverse which has also caused the rest of the fields of the reverse to have texture just wondering if anyone else has noticed this yet if it becomes a thing i have plenty of them to share these seem to have a buldge in the middle from the strike pressure they are easy to see after youve found one the normal has mo texture in the fields where as these are very grainy around the tree and shinny behind it 16139737884523624315637392303024.jpg

    These may be struck through grease anomalies. Very, very common on statehood and later quarters.

      If you happen to have any of them on hand check some out in person i have over 20 examples that are identical each way the examples that have the issue all have the shape of presidents head showing as normal and entire coin from there to the rim being textured extremely evenly its easy to see this with 0 magnification it is harder for me to get an image of it i was also in an area with bad light i always thought struck thru grease would result in missing devices and would think also that it would most likely differ slightly from one example to the next the ones i have i could hand to you 1 at a time and you would never know i wasnt giving you the same coin over and over im wondering if not slight clash for lack of a better word of maybe its defective planchets but again i cant see that being so flawlessly repeated on so many examples ....ill line up 10 clear field coins and 10 with the anomaly beside one another and maybe the light will catch enough of them in a way to show how exact this is on all of them thanks for the reply

        I don't have any to look at so I will take your word on it. The fact that it is not on all of these quarters makes me believe we are talking about a particular pair of dies. I would need to see them to make that determination, but it does not sound or look like a clash. The photo looks as though it may be a light coat of grease.

            Send me a private message Jonathan and we will work out a way that I can have a good look at them under my scope and return them. Curiosity never killed anyone (except the cat).

              These all have the same deal going on normal polished area behind tree on back shaped and sized like presidents head also the obverse is the same only president is polished everything around him is super textured i have a lot more like this and just as many that are not like this i had been trying to pick a few for sending to be graded as a beginning legacy for my grandson who is only 2 now i figured sometime in his lifetime a couple nice preserved graded coins from now may be worth a little
