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

  • Unsure of 1953 Lincoln Wheat Penny Error Classification

    I originally placed this post in the "General Forum", but after more research I believe this forum is the one I should have posed my questions too.

    I would like to know if this classifies as an "Error coin" based on the reverse? What I believe to be an error starts at the top left of the "o" in "of" and appears to extend up to the "i" and "t" of "United". I was also seeking guidance on how/who I should send the coin to for authentication. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    The best I can tell, it's post mint damage.
