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

  • 2001 Lincoln cent

    I believe the obverse has a die clash that runs across the field from 9 o'clock to 1 o'clock.

    I don't see any indications of a clash. What I do see looks like a stain of some sort. Even a rotated misaligned die clash wouldn't leave any marks in that area.

      Mustbebob , I know photos sometimes don't display all the physical characteristics of certain errors and that is expected. When I drag my fingernail across that portion of that field, there is a definite impression edge that is felt there.

        I don't doubt you for a second. What I can tell you is that it is not a clash. It doesn't look like one and most of the Memorial building (which is what a clash close to this would be) is straight lines. I can also tell you that even a stain can have a ridge if the liquid spilled on it was thicker and left some residue. Of course, this is all a guess on my part. I am only going by what it looks like to me.

        Here are some clash photos from J. Cuve and Mad Die Clashes.com that show you the location of clash marks,

          Mustbebob, I'm actually familiar with the Mad Die Clashes website. I have a question. Could there be a flaw in the planchet thickness in that small arc area. It weighs 2.4 grams. All the ones I've weighed in the past were dead on 2.5 grams. I'm just trying to figure out what produced that slight ridge line. It's definitely not damage because the E in WE is struck over it and so is Lincoln's back of head.

            .1 of a gram is so miniscule that I don't think it has anything to do with what you are seeing. It certainly can't cause what you are seeing there. At this point, I am no longer going to render any opinions on this coin. I gave you my opinion, and I guess that's what I am sticking to as I have no other guesses.

              Mustbebob, Got it. I'll be hanging on to this one as well. It's got a unique look.
