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

  • 1979 p DDO penny

    Hello everyone,

    I hope you are having a great day. I wanted to share a picture of my 1979 p penny that seems to be a double die obverse, I compared this coin to a normal business strike penny graded MS64 at PCGS and the date, Liberty and in god we trust are thicker than a normal 1979p penny and the 9 on the 19 of the the had a complete separation on the bottom.
    after posting a photo in CoinHelpU community I was suggested to share the photo here to get your opinion and for a possible attribution.

    I do not see any sign of MD anywhere on the coin and of you suspect there is a MD please let me know and I will be more than happy to post photos by tomorrow.

    Thank you for your time

    I think we are seeing die wear and some sort of hit on the first nine. I do not detect class VI extra thickness.

      Hello Jason,
      I currently don’t have a right equipment to take a professional photos but I tried my best by putting the jewelry loop on my phones, I tried my best to show you the separation on the earlier photo.

      im waiting for a new microscope currently I apologize.

        We made a decision to try and keep the discussion on the board as opposed to PMs as per a previous incident. Thanks for the additional photos of the 1979, I still see a normal coin with die wear. 1974-1982 are very hard years to pick out a class VI doubled die.

          I realized that I forgot to post a photo from the back of the coin.
          I do not want to waste anyone’s time I just want to share one last photo.

          Yes I have Aspergers, I also have a above average IQ and always search for logic and nothing else.

          let me explain something, from early on when I started collecting pennies I noticed that over 90% of the DDR/DDOs are having very common similarities,
          1st - the T in United will be missing a part of the right side.
          2nd - R and I in the motto will be touching.

          I will only post one last photos here and if you believe in logic you might tell yourself maybe he is right.

          thanks for al of your time
