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

  • 1968 proof dime broadstruck?

    I went to the local dealer the other day and bought his remaining proof sets they had and discovered this dime in the lot. Notice the starting from the NNE running all the way to the SSE. Ive left it in the holder thus far but will be cracking it out and having it graded.

    It is not broadstruck. Had this coin been broadstruck, it would have been larger than normal and there would be no reeding on it at all as the collar which imparts the reeding on the edge of the coin fails to deploy. Proof coins during this era were struck at least two times. This coin probably has the marks of being ejected incorrectly, but it definitely is not broadstruck.
