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

  • New 2000 D Sacagawea Mint Error?

    Hi Everyone, I have a 2000 D Sacagawea coin with a reverse showing a die chip/crack/cud on the Eagle's leg above the talons. I call it "Freed Eagle" because it looks like it was tied up and it freed itself by pecking on the rope. Quite an imagination right? Lol. Has anyone else seen this on a another Sacagawea coin? Is this something that is attributable? Please advise.

    Best Regards,
    Coinfused

    That area is unlikely t have a die crack/chip and since this appears to be damage, there may not be another like it. I would love to see another coin with the same anomaly to be better able to ascertain whether it is a scrape or actually a die error.

      Bob, Taking a closer look through my cheap coin scope, it reminds me of a possible foreign object being introduced/fell in during minting process. I would be more than happy to send it to you or someone you'd recommend for analysis if it helps shed some light to this error.

      Best Regards,

        I appreciate the offer coinfused, but right now, that won't be necessary. My major concern with this coin is the large gouge on the leg just to the west of the anomaly. I am thinking the metal scraped from that area might be what we are looking at. I will be willing to look sometime later, but right now is not good for me.

            Bob has a good point. It could easily be a damaged coin, another example with the same anomaly would change that.
