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

  • Just what is the proper name for this error.

    I bumped into this Lincoln Cent 1969 S today. I'm not sure how to classify it. Is it a brockage? Counter Brockage? Off Center? Broad strike? All of the above? Some of the above?

    It's not an error. It's a vandalized coin. Your coin was crushed between two other cents. These are variously known as squeeze jobs, vise jobs, hammer jobs, sandwich jobs, etc.
