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

  • 1968 Lincoln cent with odd rim

    I have a very good idea how this was caused on this 1968 Lincoln cent, but wanted to make sure that I was correct. My guess is that this was milled for a good luck charm or souvenir key chain of sorts.

    Any other thoughts on this odd rim.

    It could be an encased, or lucky token cent. The abrupt truncation at the tops of IGWT is a sign of post-strike damage/alteration.
