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

    It is difficult to tell for me when I am on this tablet.
    With the photos provided, I cannot get the clarity to tell, if it is a strike through, lamination issue, die chip or simply a stain.

    If you look immediately to the right of that pick up point (pup), I believe there is another area like it, although not as obvious.
    If the area in question is:
    sunk into the coin, it may be a struck through.
    appears that part of the copper was torn away, it may be a lamination issue.
    Looks like a piece of metal, slightly higher that normal, almost like a drop of solder, it may be a die chip.

    If the area just looks normal, it very well may be post mint damage, possibly a stain happening after it left the mint.

    Unsure if it is mechanical/machine/strike doubling or damage? I suggest reading this post below !
