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

    Thanks again for your response. I will attempt to have better pics taken of this anomaly on the coin, and will send as soon as I am able - hopefully in the next day or two.

    My apologies. I can see what you are referring to and I appreciate the clarification. Do you have any friends that might be able to get a better photo for you to upload? I just don't quite know what to make of the anomaly. After listing over 100 of these doubled dies in 2009, I can say that I have never seen one quite like this one. I am interested in getting to the bottom of it.

    Dear Mr. Piazza .. Thank you for your response. I am not referring to the book. Please take another look at the THUMB, where it can be clearly seen that there is a 2nd thumb. That's what I am referring to. I do not find this variety listed. I apologize for the quality of the photos, but I have an old phone that does not take great pics.

    I can clearly see something at the top of the book. However, I can not determine what it is with the photos. It could be a crack, gouge, or part of another hubbing. Is there any way to get a better photo of the anomaly?

    New Variety Error

    Dear sirs,

    I recently purchased several rolls of 2009 & 2009D Lincoln Cents "Formative Year" version, and have discovered several with known variety errors, and also this one that has a very obvious error: there is a second small thumb at the thumb joint that can be clearly seen. However, I do not find this variety among the known varieties. Not-so-great pics of the coin are attached, but this new variety-error can be clearly seen in even these poor photos.

    What must I do to have this coin examined, so that it might be recognized and added to the varieties database?

    I look forward to your response. Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Sincerely yours,
    William Bailey
