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.

  • 1986-P Jefferson Nickel Error?

    Hello! Found this nickel coin roll hunting. It appears the clad layer is missing exposing the underlying copper. Am I correct in this assessment? I weighed it in case it was a case of an incorrect planchet and it was 4.92g so it was within normal accepted variance. Also it’s about the expected weight for a nickel missing it’s clad exterior. If I am wrong what’s going on here? Thanks!

    Nickels are not clad. This just looks like environmental discoloration Don.
