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

  • 1918 Lincoln cent "ERROR", made to deceive?

    I got to looking at some of the coins that I had put up awhile back and this one drew my attention.

    At first it appears to be some type of die deformity, however, careful observation shows that the upper portion of this "anomaly" extends past the edge (area shown by arrow), something that could not happen when the coin was struck. Interestingly enough, the coloration of the blob of metal is the same as the copper of the coin and how it has been attached remains a mystery.

    If you look on the obverse, you can also see another small blob of metal, indicated by the arrows. The coin was submerged in acetone with no affects.
