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

  • 1988P Lincoln Cent No FG- Variety Attribution?

    Hello everyone. I ended up here with CONECA as this seems to be THE place to go for potential variety attribution of new finds. I have been searching the last couple weeks about info related to a 1988P LMC No FG (along with Lincoln being pretty much totally removed) only to be left scratching my head. I have reached out to Ken Wexler with these same photo's and he agreed that this is due to over polishing of the dies. My next question is, how do we go about having this become a recognized variety? If additional pics are needed/wanted please just let me know. I think they show it pretty clearly. 1988P LMC Obv 1.jpg 1988P LMC Obv 2.jpg 1988P LMC Rev 1.jpg 1988P LMC Rev 2.jpg

    Just realized that I posted this in the Error forum and not the Variety forum. If an admin can move this......

      The error forum is the correct area for this type of anomaly. Die polishing can happen at any time and I am sure you will find many examples of partial or complete abrading. This is normally not something that would be listed as a variety. Over zealous individuals in the past have pushed polishing errors like the 3 legged Buffalo' and the 1969D Missing Designer's initials as something more than what they are. They are simply abrading issues and should not be listed. If we ever get into where someone wants to try and list every abrading coin and assign numbers, they are in for a long haul with no end in sight.
