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

  • Shattered die question

    I have what I believe is a shattered die nickel. It has 5 die cracks radiating from Monticello, 2 of which are very thick, and one die crack that seems to extend from the top left portion of Monticello, and curves around to the upper right of the dome. Before I spend an hour trying to get a picture, I just wanted to know if it was possible that it could be a shattered die. As I recall, the date is 1998, but I'll have to go check to make sure tomorrow. I'll try to get some pics if I can, but with my camera, it's nearly impossible to get a good close-up.

    From your description, it certainly sounds like it could be a shattered die. Even though I haven't heard of a shattered die from this year, that's no barrier to one existing. I'd love to see some photos.
