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

    Look for die chips in the word LIBERTY. Especially IIB and BIE I am looking for both of these. I will buy them from you if found. Thanks. Let me know what else you find.

    If you are looking at the 1960 small date Lincoln cent (either P or D), be on the lookout for peripheral die clashes (tilted die clashes).

    Hi coulsonmd, I found 3 die breaks so far just in one roll. 2 different ones are on the bottom bust of Lincoln, 1 is on the reverse top right of memorial just above the last column, and the last one is on the I of America and has 2 breaks. Let me know if you need pictures

    Have you found ANY die cracks in the mint sewn bag of 1960P?

    Thanks everyone for your help!! I kinda thought it was a lamination but had never seen one that looked like clam shells. Wonder what the coin would of looked like if it had been struck. Also kinda funny that this was the only coin in the entire bag that had lamination and it was unstruck. Hmmmm

    Jerry:

    I hope you look at the 1960P coins carefully. I just finished 35 BU rolls of 1960P cents and found many die cracks and chips that I had not seen before. Some of the cracks went from top to bottom off the edges. Do you have access to Jean Cohen's book, THE CLASSIFICATION AND VALUE OF ERRORS ON THE LINCOLN CENT? Jean cataloged 7,000 die breaks on the Lincoln cent. If you are not familiar with cracks you will need a good 10x loupe and if possible a 10X to 20X stereo microscope for your search. I very much enjoy the hunt for these types of varieties. If you need help please ask. I will help you.

    Planchet with a lamination error

    Hello everyone!! This is my 1st post on these boards. My name is Jerry and im from Rapid City SD. Found this blank in a 1960-P mint sewn bag a couple weeks ago. Not sure what the exact terminology of this error would be. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
