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

  • A couple of things going on with this 1958-D Lincoln Cent

    The coin appears to be a pretty nice BU, but it's got a small strip of metal or wire struck through the obverse, as well as a raised 'dot' between the 9 & 5 of the date. The strike through is easy enough to figure out, but what about that raised circular spot?

      It's surely not. It appears to be a perfectly round dot of bright copper raised above the surface of the coin. I'll try to get some better images posted....because you're correct, it does look a bit transparent in the picture posted.
